Supporting Run for the Rose

About the Run

Dr. Marnie Rose was in the first year of her pediatric medical residency at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital when she was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer. The Run for the Rose was created in memory of Marnie, and to raise funds for brain cancer research and treatment.

The Run now supports immunotherapy research, new drug development and clinical trials for patients with brain cancer, as well as neuroscience research initiatives and pediatric palliative care. The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation has raised over $3.5 million dollars to date to fund these endeavors.
