SAN DIEGO, Aug. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HempMeds® is proud to announce it will be this year's title sponsor of Hope4Harper's 4th Annual "Run4Hope" 1-Mile Kids Fun Run & 5K that takes place Saturday, September 12 at Andy Brown Park East in Coppell, TX (260 E. Parkway Blvd., Coppell, TX 75019). The organization raises funds to research Cyclin Dependent Kinase Like 5, CDKL5, epilepsy and seizure-related disorders. HempMeds® is a corporate portfolio company of Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) and the exclusive master distributor and contracted marketing company for the event.

"We are thrilled to support Hope4Harper's research efforts as this year's title sponsor at the Run4Hope Fun Run & 5K," states Andrew Hard, Spokesperson for HempMeds®. "Through the love of her parents, care givers and support network, Harper has achieved incredibly challenging activities at just five years of age. She exudes the definition of 'giving hope' to others here and around the world."

At two weeks of age, Harper Elle Howard was overcome with seizures. Her parents scoured the country searching for a doctor who could tell them what was happening. Dustin and Penny Howard heard the words "CDKL5" and "no known cure." They reflect, "It was simply unacceptable. We were committed to doing everything we could to improve Harper's quality of life."
