Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation 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 diagnosis of ‘brain cancer’ exposed its relative unimportance in the hierarchy of cancers, the lack of funding for its research, and the limited interest by pharmaceutical companies to the disease. Rather than retreat, the Foundation’s founding board decided to respond. What began as a simple walk in her memory has turned into multiple programs directed at eradicating brain cancer and continuing Dr. Rose’s legacy in pediatric initiatives. To date (2020), the foundation has donated nearly $7 million to brain cancer research and pediatric initiatives. Run for the Rose is the foundation’s primary program in Houston, TX. Each year, the Run brings together over 5,000 people whose lives have either been directly or non-directly impacted by brain cancer or who work in the field of brain cancer research. Over 300 volunteers participate in Run for the Rose. Brain Power 5K is the Foundation’s secondary race in Austin, TX, which brings together more than 2,000 people each year. Since the first year of Run for the Rose, the foundation’s annual 5K Fun Run/Walk, we have received incredible support from the Houston Jewish community: BBYO volunteers arrive for our earliest shift to help set up the race, volunteers staff packet pick-ups, distribute brochures and publicize the cause as well as hand out food and man the children’s areas at the post-race party, B’nai Mitzvah students choose the Run for their mitzvah projects, Registering to walk or run on race day. The Jewish community has embraced the mission of the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation with an enthusiasm, an outpouring of support, and a generosity that is unsurpassed. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!
