Run for the Rose will be a virtual only event to keep our community healthy and prevent the spread of COVID-19. This is in accordance with the Mayor’s Office of Special Events which is not currently permitting fun runs/walks.

From Sunday, November 15 through Sunday, December 6, pick the perfect date and time to complete your 5k. Choose your own starting line, whether it is on a neighborhood street or a treadmill. Alternatively, you may choose to dance, hike, bike, or take a Zumba class. You can get creative!

Move 3.1 miles with your family and friends (please social distance) who want to support you, brain cancer research and pediatric health initiatives. This year we need your support now more than ever.

The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation is planning a fun, meaningful, and engaging virtual experience. More information will be added to the website and social media as details for the virtual #RFTRatHOME plans are finalized. If you have any ideas or questions, please email

Run for the Rose supports MD Anderson Cancer Center’s immunotherapy research, new drug development and clinical trials for patients with brain cancer, as well as neuroscience research initiatives and the Pediatric Palliative Care Program at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. At McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston, funds support cutting-edge research and treatment for children with brain tumors, a cause close to Marnie’s heart.
