Brain Power 5K

Every 3 minutes someone new is diagnosed with a brain tumor. Every dollar from a donor turns into an estimated $5-$10 of federal grant money.

The Brain Power 5K is a home-grown, Central Texas event and community created by a local brain tumor survior with 100% of the proceeds STAYING in TEXAS. In addition, a large amount of these dollars raised stay in the Austin area- with all monies benefiting brain cancer patients and research.

Funding supports the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation for Brain Cancer Research at MD Anderson Cancer Center benefiting research for treatments that are used at cancer centers all over the world. And Central Texas programs such as Brain Cancer Research at Scott & White Brain Tumor Center and assisting brain tumor patients in need through Austin Cancer Centers' LIVE Foundation.

The race has made considerable progress consecutively each year. With immensely successful fundraising and the race field continuing to nearly double from one year to the next, we are confident in the monumental impact the BP5K is making in the fight against brain cancer.

The Brain Power 5K is Central Texas' Race Against Brain Cancer funding Brain Cancer Research, Raising Awareness & Recognizing all affected. Sept. 11, 2016

Proceeds from the Brain Power 5K, 10K, Survivor Stride & Kids Run go to the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation to support their efforts to eradicate brain cancer and to support brain tumor programs in Central Texas.

We are proud to offer the below for our valued community:
*Recognize, remember and celebrate loved ones affected by brain tumors.
*Opportunity for brain tumor survivors to be recognized in the community, meet other survivors, gain strength and camaraderie from one another and their journeys.
*Brain Power Hour - monthly meet-up for brain tumor survivors.
*Raise necessary dollars for severely under-funded brain tumor research (funds go to the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation for brain cancer research at MD Anderson and local efforts here in Central Texas).
*Events throughout the year to increase brain tumor awareness in Central Texas.
*The Brain Power 5K, 10K and Kid's K each September for runners, walkers and families to raise funds for brain tumor research and gather in honor of our cause.

*The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation became the only Houston foundation funding brain cancer research at MD Anderson, which has one of the largest --if not the largest-- brain tumor centers in the world. At MD Anderson, two clinical trials have resulted directly from our contributions. We have watched our funding of cutting-edge immunotherapy research double --DOUBLE-- the average survival time for brain tumor patients. Some patients are still alive beyond that without recurrence and with a great quality of life. We continue as the funding source for these patients. In addition, our support of new drug development is expediting the delivery of these drugs from the lab to the patient.

An estimated $5-10 of federal funding and grant support is generated from each $1 of seed money provided by donors. Your contributions go directly to patient care and save lives.* (Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation)

The 6th Annual Brain Power 5K will be in September 11 2016, at 8:30am with the Kid's K at 8am.

Sponsorship opportunities are available, please contact Mercedes Orten at mercedes@drmarnierose.org.
