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 as well as a Golf Scramble. All money raised goes toward the Marquette Challenge and Physical Therapy Research.
