The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation celebrates the lives and legacies of those who are battling or have battled brain cancer. Brain tumor and brain cancer patients (also known as "Heroes") receive complimentary registration to Run for the Rose. Please email for your special discount code.


We have an area at the post-race party where race participants can walk by to view pictures of Heroes and write notes. It’s very powerful. After the Run, we store the banners then use them them year after year. To be included, email 1-2 pictures (high resolution JPEG or PDF).

Grateful families of patients often ask what they can do to thank their doctors. Creating a team for Run for the Rose takes very little effort yet brings such positive rewards to everyone involved. Run for the Rose welcomes the support of Neuroscience programs at all hospitals. The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation will return to each hospital the total funds raised by its patients. The Run offers all brain cancer patients and their families a place to meet and a venue where they can do something meaningful for themselves and their own doctors.
