Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation Cycles for a Cure with ROSE PEDAL™


HOUSTON –– The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation is adding an indoor cycling campaign to its scope of events to maximize fundraising efforts and heighten awareness for brain cancer research. ROSE PEDAL™ is a competitive team event for the leisure and dedicated cyclist.

Teams of four will compete on stationary bikes to ride the most miles in four hours. A second award will be given to the team who raises the most money. Each team member is required to donate or raise at least $100 to participate. A location is currently being scouted for the inaugural event.

The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation became the very first in the Greater Houston, Texas, area to hold a fundraising event that would benefit adult brain cancer research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, one of the world’s premier cancer centers.

Run for the Rose, a 5K and 1K run and walk, is the foundation’s signature event held every spring. Funds raised are donated to brain cancer research at MD Anderson Cancer Center, pediatric health initiatives at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, and the Dr. Marnie Rose Professorship in Pediatric Neurosurgery at McGovern Medical School (formerly UTHealth Medical School). The foundation now has donated more than $4.75 million since 2003.
