Greetings again. My name is Justin Michaud and you may recall a fundraiser I put together for the #TuffysFight campaign last year. It was a great success. Josh,Andrew and I completed 22 miles of urban hiking as our event. With peoples help we raised 2000$ in 2 months!!This year I am stepping it up a bit

The Event:
This September 9/29 we start Friday and end Sunday October 1st! We will be on foot for a 65 Mile Trek from Philadelphia to Ocean City N.J. We will cover the distance in 2.5 days. We are covering our own expenses. 100% of All donations will go to #TuffysFight Foundation. We are making milestones here in the cannabis community. We want all to have safe access and education to cannabis as medication. With your help #TuffysFight Foundation can help children around the country and world. #TuffysFight Foundation


 #TuffysFight Foundation:

Tuffysfight foundation is now freeing up time in their busy lives to help give back to those in need. They are providing education and once their location is established they will be able to host presentations by Cannabis Doctors, growers and dispensary workers. Creating a safe space for those who maybe in the "Cannabis Closet" or may feel they don't know where to start. As we are starting to learn that a great majority of people that need cannabis is actually children. Since Tatiana (Tuffy) has been treating with cannabis and a Keto-Paleo Diet her life has vastly improved. LGS has an average mortality rate of 9 years. Tuffy just turned 10!!! Her success along with others will rewrite the medical journals on cannabis and how it helps with epilepsy.

Tatyana, a.k.a. Tuffy, suffers from Lennox Gastaut Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy. Tatyana was suffering from over 300 seizures a day, including 25-30 grand mal seizures. Her father discovered that cannabis virtually eliminated the seizures, and since she has been a licensed patient. Tuffy's progress has been nothing short of miraculous. Unfortunately, the medical marijuana program in New Jersey is not only costly, it offers extremely limited resources for compassionate care, both in terms of education and treatment.
