McKee Medical Center staff dances for breast cancer awareness
LOVELAND, Colo. (Oct. 1, 2012) – The Pink Glove Dance is spreading … to McKee Medical Center.
Fifty employees from a variety of work areas at McKee Medical Center star in their own Pink Glove Dance video to help spread the word about breast cancer awareness and prevention. The video was submitted to a national competition to determine the best Pink Glove Dance video of 2012. The song used in McKee’s video is “This One’s for the Girls,” by Martina McBride. An interesting side note is that the artist gave permission to use this song specifically for the Pink Glove Dance competition. This is the second annual competition sponsored by Medline Industries, producer of the original Pink Glove Dance video.
As part of the Pink Glove Dance 2012 competition, McKee’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; McKee has chosen Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The winners will be announced Nov. 2 on www.pinkglovedance.com.
