FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Avid Hemp Joins St. Jude Walk/Run Fundraiser in Tampa
Customers, fans, and outright strangers invited to support Team Avid Hemp on September 14
TAMPA, FL, September 9, 2019 – Avid Hemp has become one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of premium CBD products by treating their customers right. In that spirit, Avid Hemp is proud to announce its participation in St. Jude’s 2019 Walk/Run fundraiser on September 14. The 5K race is part of a nationwide event visiting scores of US cities this September to help St. Jude provide treatment and care for children with cancer.
Customers and other fans of Avid Hemp are welcome to join or support the Avid Hemp team by visiting St. Jude’s website. All donations go directly to supporting St. Jude’s mission of providing exceptional care for children with cancer, without any financial cost to their families, and to St. Jude’s research efforts.
The event, says Avid Hemp Marketing Administrator (and team captain) Linsay Franks, dovetails perfectly with Avid Hemp’s own philanthropic efforts.
“We already donate a percentage of our profits to cancer research,” she notes. “That’s due in part to the number of cancer patients who rely on our products. Many of those patients are children whose parents turn to us to help manage the symptoms of cancer treatment. So when St. Jude announced its Walk/Run event, we didn’t think twice.”
It helps that St. Jude’s efforts have been so successful. Since the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened its doors in 1962, the survival rate for childhood cancer has risen from less than 20% to 80%. That effectiveness is due in part to St. Jude’s remarkably efficient operations: the hospital’s charitable arm boasts a perfect four-star rating on Charity Navigator, including a perfect score for accountability and transparency.
“We run a tight ship at Avid Hemp,” says Franks, “and we support charities who do the same. St. Jude has been honoring its benefactors’ trust for nearly 60 years, and we’re proud to do our part on September 14.”
