What is JUMP FOR THE ROSE?
Jump for the Rose is a non-profit organization founded by skydiving enthusiast and breast cancer survivor Marian Sparks.
Marian’s relationship with The Rose began when she got unfavorable results in her mammogram. Through The Rose, she was able to get the treatments and surgery she needed, despite her lack of medical insurance.
As a non-profit, donation-based organization, The Rose strives to help every individual survive breast cancer, no matter what. With her lumpectomy and treatments being successful, Marian wanted to give back to The Rose and to pay it forward. She discussed the idea with her skydiving girlfriends and in October of 2010, Jump for the Rose was born.
