My name is Mary Sylvester, and I am a dance educator, and lover of pugs, from central Connecticut. On October 13, 2018, I will be running my first marathon, the Hartford Marathon, and raising money for PRoNE, Pug Rescue of New England.
PRoNE Mission Statement: "Pug Rescue of New England (PRoNE) is a non-profit 501(c)(3), volunteer foster home based rescue organization. Our mission is simple: we find homes for abandoned and surrendered pugs in the six New England states. Our pugs are up-to-date on shots and spayed or neutered prior to being placed in a forever home. PRoNE is supported by adoption fees, donations and funds raised through our special events."
PRoNE has been particularly special to my family, not only because of their exceptional work with rescue dogs, but because of the wonderful events we have been able to participate in with our treasured pugs, Daisy, Humphrey, and Lily.
I will running this marathon in memory of our sweet Daisy, who passed away in December 2017.
Thank you so much for your support!
