As we approach the 15th Anniversary of our Run for the Rose, we reflect on our journey to this day. Marnie’s diagnosis in 2001 introduced us to the horrors of brain cancer, its relative unimportance in the hierarchy of cancers, the lack of funding for its research, the limited interest by pharmaceutical companies. Those affected by an injustice must be the ones who address it. We and our village of volunteers, donors, family and friends have enabled the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation to give more than $5.3 million since 2003 to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and UTHealth McGovern Medical School!!

Monies received through sponsorships and donations are tax-deductible and go directly to our hospitals for their immediate use.

Please visit our website or email us for more information on the Run and the Foundation. You also can follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

We are so grateful for all that has been accomplished through the hard work, kindness and generosity of all who support the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation.
