Mannheim Steamroller is coming to the Ford Idaho this December! LITE-FM wants to send you to the show!

But you have to dare to be bold and make a difference this weekend to earn your tickets!

Townsquare Media Boise

This Saturday is the St. Luke's FitOne 5K/10K/Half Marathon in Downtown Boise and you won't be able to miss LITE-FM's "Good as Gold" team on the course! We've teamed up with our friends from Camp Rainbow Gold to flood the race with people dripping in gold.  Why? Because FitOne falls during Childhood Cancer Awareness month (gold is the month's awareness color) and almost all of Camp Rainbow Gold's oncology campers get treated through the St. Luke's Children's Hospital at some point during their cancer journey.  We want to show these brave little ones that they've got a huge team of cheerleaders by their side during the fight of their life.

Camp Rainbow Gold SHINE Gala 2018

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Camp Rainbow Gold SHINE Gala last year and take a look behind the curtain of what camp is really like.  During meal times, the campers are invited to put on a silly hat for their "shine" moment.  During a Shine Moment they reflect on one thing they are grateful for that day.  At the beginning of the week, it's simple kid reactions like "I shine for the cooks who made our sandwiches tonight" but as they get more comfortable and open up it's not uncommon to hear things like "I shine for my doctors and nurses who are trying to make me better" or "I shine for the people in the Med Shack giving me my medicine so that I can be at camp." Hearing those words directly out of campers mouths made my eyes well up and it truly sunk in that to these kids, the staff from St. Luke's, who works so closely with CRG, are truly superheroes.

So that's why our team is wearing gold on Saturday: to support the kids, thank the St. Luke's staff and dream of a cure! Will you be bold in gold with us?! We're looking for the best gold outfit on the St. Luke's FitOne Course! We'll reward the person who went all out with a pair of tickets to one of the Treasure Valley's most anticipated holiday concerts, Mannheim Steam Roller at the Ford Idaho Center on December 10!
