From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, former NFL quarterback Jake Plummer, along with Ricky Williams, in partnership with the Marijuana Industry Trade Association are hosting Remembrance: A Health and Wellness Festival at Chandler Park, 178 E. Commonwealth Ave.

Ticket prices start at $25 and can be purchased HERE.

At Remembrance, attendees can interact with Mr. Plummer and Mr. Williams along with dozens of other athletes and sports figures, enjoy invigorating yoga — and participate in sound healing on the grass while learning about alternative healing modalities.

There will be a must-attend drum circle, chiropractor activation, and opportunities to learn about the benefits of naturopathic medicine, cannabis, plant-based remedies, massage, acupuncture, functional mushrooms, yoga, meditation, reiki, breathe work, sound healing, according to a press release.

Experts from Sonoran University of Health Sciences will be on hand to share research and knowledge on the various modalities within naturopathic medicine.

Mr. Plummer enjoyed a 10-year tenure in the NFL after a successful football career at Arizona State University. Now, he is a celebrated entrepreneur and advocate for natural health remedies, including being the owner of UMBO, a line of all-natural functional mushroom supplements.

“The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in America. It highlights the epitome of human performance and health,” Mr. Plummer said in a prepared statement. “And it sparked an idea for a collective of us, hosting a health and wellness summit to engage the community to deepen a remembrance of natural wellness. Herbs, mushrooms, yoga, cannabis, acupuncturists, and so many other wellness modalities are entering the mainstream.”

According to Demitri Downing, founder of MITA, the focus should always be on how members of a community utilize substances and modalities for healing and balance, never abuse.

“It’s exciting to see our modern-day gladiators adopt this messaging,” he said. “Cannabis should always be used responsibly to improve the human mind, body, spirit and condition,” said Mr. Williams, founder of the Highsman Cannabis brand. “I want people to keep this message in mind as they pursue their best lives.”
