The Rochester Race for Research (R4R) is a non-profit group formed by the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students of Rochester, Minnesota. Every year, the classes gather together to put on fundraising events, most notably the Rochester Race for Research, to raise money for the Marquette Challenge for Physical Therapy Research. Over the years, students have expanded upon these fundraising events adding in prize nights at venues across Rochester. All money raised goes toward the Marquette Challenge and Physical Therapy Research.

Thanks to all who supported the Rochester Race for Research through the silent auction at Grand Rounds Brewery. We were able to raise over $1600!


Unfortunately, due to increased cost of our normal Spring Race for Research space we will not be hosting the Spring R4R 5K this year. Thanks to all supporters and donors who have supported us in the past. We look forward to future fundraising events next year.
