Washakie Medical Center dons pink gloves for breast cancer awareness
WORLAND, Wyo. (Oct. 1, 2012) – The Pink Glove Dance is spreading…to Washakie Medical Center in Worland. Several of the staff members, plus members of the local breast cancer support and survivors group, Gorgeous Gals, star in their own Pink Glove Dance video to help spread the word about breast cancer awareness and prevention.
WMC filmed the video at the hospital earlier this month and obtained clips from the annual Gorgeous Gals Gala.
The video is being submitted to a national competition to determine the best Pink Glove Dance video of 2012. The second annual competition is sponsored by Medline Industries, Inc., manufacturer of the gloves and producer of the original Pink Glove Dance video.
As part of the Pink Glove Dance 2012 competition, Washakie’s video will be posted on www.pinkglovedance.com on Oct. 12 along with the videos of the other participants to be viewed by the public. Viewers can vote on their favorite video (voting requires a Facebook® account). The top three winners receive a donation in their name to the breast cancer charity of their choice, such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The winners will be announced Nov. 2 on pinkglovedance.com.
