In 2006, Rose DiGangi was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma, a malignant Brain Tumor. After a courageous battle, Rose passed away on October 20th, 2007. In her memory, the DiGangi Family has raised awareness in support for Brain Tumor Research. Since it’s first event in 2007, approximately $350,000 has been raised and donated towards research programs of The American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA). Join the DiGangi’s and “Run For Rose” to help battle this aggressive disease. Come out and join the DiGangi Family and friends for a great day at the beach!
