Published: Sep 14, 2018
SAN DIEGO, /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that subsidiary HempMeds® is sponsoring the seventh and last-ever annual Run 4 Hope Festival and 5K in Coppell, TX on Saturday, September 15, 2018.
Run 4 Hope is in memory of Harper Elle Howard, the little girl with CDKL5 epilepsy who helped bring medical marijuana to Latin America, and lost her battle to a CDKL5 disorder on Jan. 8, 2016. According to the International Foundation for CDKL5 Research, there are fewer than 1,000 diagnosed cases of this rare, life-threatening genetic disorder worldwide, with one in 22 people diagnosed with epilepsy. Additionally, Harper's brain is the first to be donated to CDKL5 research in another effort to help find a cure.
"Medical Marijuana, Inc. and its subsidiary HempMeds® are proud to be a part of the Run 4 Hope for the seventh and final time. Our company is humbled to support a cause that we hold so dear to our hearts," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. Chief Executive Officer Dr. Stuart Titus. "The passion found at these events reminds us why we continue to educate and research the many therapeutic uses of cannabidiol (CBD)."
"The Run 4 Hope Festival is my way of giving back to what hemp CBD products gave to Harper and continues to give to my family," said Penny Howard, mother of Harper and founder of the Hope for Harper non-profit organization. "We want to continue spreading awareness of CDKL5 and the treatments available for those patients and their families."
The final run will take place at the Andy Brown Park East, located at 260 Parkway Blvd in Coppell, TX 75019. The 5K will begin at 8 a.m. and the one-mile run will begin at 8:30 a.m. More information about the 7th Annual Run 4 Hope Festival and 5K can be found here.
