To Our Wonderful and Generous Supporters:

The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation is amazed at the strides we and you, our incredible supporters, have made advancing medical science. You give so generously and selflessly of your time and your money each and every year to help others. We truly never can express our gratitude to the extent you deserve.

Many of you gave us advice to help start the Foundation–and we are still listening!! Hundreds of you volunteer the month before Run for the Rose and the day of the Run. Thousands of you participate and donate each and every year. It is because of your unwavering support that we have been able to give nearly $7 million to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston, since 2003.

YOU see our “Heroes” (brain tumor survivors) and their families at the Run year after year. YOU have made their extended survival possible. YOU have enabled them to continue in their careers. YOU have allowed them to celebrate family milestones. YOUR DONATIONS have given them life, the most precious of all gifts. How proud all of you should be to see the immediate results of your generosity!! We speak for these patients when we say our hearts overflow with gratitude.

Monies received through donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible and go directly to our two hospitals. An estimated $5-10 of federal funding and grant support is generated from each $1 of seed money provided by you, our generous donors.
