SAVE THE DATE! 12th Run for the Rose - Sunday, March 30, 2014!!
We approach our 11th Annual Run for the Rose amazed at the strides we and you, our incredibly generous supporters, have made advancing medical science. It is because of your unwavering support that we have been able to give a remarkable $3,053,000.00 to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. Your contributions truly are a gift of life.
Marnie put a human face to brain cancer and offered strength and hope to those suffering from the disease she was also battling. The Run honors Marnie's spirit, courage and strength that benefits two causes that touched her life so personally — brain cancer and children.
Monies received through sponsorships and donations are tax-deductible and go directly to our two hospitals. An estimated $5-10 of federal funding and grant support is generated from each $1 of seed money provided by donors.

On behalf of the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation, thank you for supporting our annual Run for the Rose. We appreciate your participation.
The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation was founded in 2002 in memory of Dr. Marnie Rose, a 28-year-old pediatric resident who passed away from what is considered one of the deadliest of human cancers, a glioblastoma (or GBM). The mission of the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation is to eradicate brain cancer through the funding of research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and to better the lives of the brave young patients at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital who were so dear to Marnie's heart. www.RunfortheRose.com
