Upcoming Events

PjamminSeptember is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Childhood cancer is the #1 disease killer of American children and adolescents, affecting 1 in 285 children under age 20. Children with cancer often spend months, even years, dressed in their PJs at home or in the hospital as they undergo critical treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Join us in the fight to beat childhood cancer, and provide HOPE to those who need it most, by PJAMMIN’ with us!  Wear your pajamas with us at Jump Start the week of September 14th – 18th to raise awareness and show your support for our friends who are fighting and surviving childhood cancer.

 BigPictureWe are inviting past and present Jump Start kids be photographed for the new children’s portrait display we are creating in our office. Every child photographed will be displayed, and we’d love to fill our empty walls with our favorite friends’ smiling faces! Each child will receive a FREE PHOTO SESSION and a $50 credit to apply toward a portrait package from the session. There is no obligation to buy anything. Custom portrait sessions will take place by appointment only during the month of October at The Big Picture Portrait Studio in Hayden. Please call (208) 772-4244 today to reserve your session!
