Tim Anderson BAF Event



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.
