The Luke Award, presented annually by St. Luke’s Health Foundation Children’s Advisory Board, recognizes individuals and businesses or organizations that have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to fundraising efforts for the Children’s Hospital.
Every year, hundreds of volunteers and businesses support five special events to raise funds and awareness for St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital. Thousands of hours given by these individuals and organizations have helped ensure that the children of our region have the depth of pediatric medical services only available at a children’s hospital.
“Luke is the essence that resides in every child receiving care at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital. From a teenage boy with cancer to a little girl injured on the playground, Luke is the strength children pull from to battle illness and mend wounds. Luke helps our critically ill young patients to smile, and gives them the courage to face life at its most difficult. And Luke is, above all, the compassionate spirit of everyone who has helped the young patients at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital.”

The 42nd annual Simplot Games will be held February 13-15, 2020, at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena. The J.R. Simplot Company-sponsored event has become one of the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field events since it was first held in 1979.
Although the 2,200 athletes from 19 different states, Canada, Australia and New Zealand who travel to Pocatello come to shine under Holt Arena’s bright lights, the Simplot Games weekend itself is about more than just standing atop a podium.
Competitors get the chance to mingle with Olympic legends like Dick Fosbury (our chairman), Andre Phillips, Willie Banks, Stacy Dragila, and more. The Games also offers recognition for everyone with the Parade of Athletes, a truly Olympic-style event.
Simplot Games is unique because it is an open meet, which means athletes do not need a certain qualifying time or distance to be able to compete. Everyone is welcome at the Games allowing high school athletes from all over the chance to compete and have fun. It truly makes Simplot Games an extraordinary experience for everyone.
