FREEHOLD – County officials recognized May as Brain Tumor Awareness Month, presenting the nonprofit Kortney Rose Foundation (KRF) with a proclamation.

The proclamation was presented to Kristen Gillette, Founder and Executive Director of the KRF, on May 30.

According to the organization, KRF “is dedicated to raising funds to support research and education related to the treatment and cure of pediatric brain tumors,” raising over $1.5 million.

The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders encouraged the public to wear gray in honor of Brain Tumor Awareness Month, using the slogan “Go Gray in May.”
