Healthy Conversations with Saint Alphonsus

32nd Annual Capitol Classic

Leave a comment

It was a splendid day for the 32nd annual Capitol Classic Children’s Race, the one-mile race from just below the Boise Train Depot to the Idaho State Capitol.  The sea of orange shirts was quite the sight as over 1,300 kids, ages 6 through 14, ran or walked their way down Capitol Boulevard.

Saint Alphonsus is dedicated to the importance of physical fitness for our young people, and this race is one way to get kids excited about running and participating in physical activity.  Who knows, maybe someday one of these race participants will be in an Ironman Boise 70.3!Alphonzo

The proceeds from the race entry fees are used to purchase “Alphonzo”, a stuffed bear given to kids who come into
our emergency department and are in need of some special comfort.  It is heartwarming to know that besides getting exercise, kids are helping kids in their time of need.

Please enjoy some photos from this year’s Capitol Classic:
