That’s the headline you’ve probably seen by now on billboards around Boise. Three different billboards – each with a portrait of a woman who has undergone cancer treatment, and the side-effects that go along with it – are around the valley to promote Boise’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
The women featured on the billboards and in other pieces for the Boise affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure are Susan Chapman, Bobbi Fuller, Margo Vaughn, Cheryl Imlach and Stephanee Rowbury.
The billboards, website, and other support materials were developed by Stoltz Marketing Group. From the story on their website:
In the new “Imagine” campaign, the women’s portraits are embellished with imaginary hairstyles, illustrating what they might look like if a cure is found. The resulting race posters, web site and other collateral material are the work of SMG’s Crissie McDowell, Kate Holgate, Lindzee “Screw the Budget” Frei, and friend Katie Shamberg who together have raised more than $40,000 to find a cure over the last few years through their own nonprofit Think Pink, Inc.
Photography for the campaign was done by Todd Meier Photography.
There are a number of events leading up to the Race for the Cure on Saturday, May 9th. Be sure to check out the website for all the details.
RSVPs for the 2009 Rockie Awards Show are due by Friday, April 3rd. The show is scheduled for Saturday, April 18th at the Knitting Factory Concert House.
Congratulations are in order for a couple of shops that are celebrating anniversaries today:

Steve Hall, Publisher of AdRants and co-founder of MarketingVOX, together with the folks at Blurb, are looking for the best of what never saw the light of day: the Killed Ideas.
From the Killed Ideas website:
We want ideas that could have changed the face of advertising, elevated a client’s brand to new heights, or won a webby – but instead ended up on the cutting room floor. TV campaigns, microsites, print goodness, viral – you name it, we want it. Whether it’s traditional or cutting-edge, we’re looking to show the best ideas to an audience who appreciate a killer campaign when they see it.
They’ve been accepting submissions for just over a month, but have extended their deadline until Tuesday, April 7th.
So if you’ve done some outstanding work that just never made it out the door, submit it at Killed Ideas and see how it stacks up against the rest. And of course, you can also follow Killed Ideas on Twitter.
