UPMC Cancer Centers Dance for Breast Cancer Awareness
The local medical facility needs your help to win this year's Pink Glove Dance contest.
UPMC CancerCenter employees and breast cancer surviors and advocates are hoping their dance moves can help raise breast cancer awareness.
More than 15 departments and 200 people from the local cancer centers—including UPMC East in Monroeville and Magee—have entered the second-annual "Pink Glove Dance" competition.
The original “Pink Glove Dance” video featured Oregon hospital employees wearing pink gloves to raise breast cancer awareness.
Because of the huge response to the video—13 million views on YouTube—Medline, which produced the original video, decided to sponsor a national competition.
Choreography for UPMC's video is set to "Evacuate the Dance Floor" by Cascada.
The public can vote for their favorite video at www.pinkglovedance.com until Nov. 2. Winners will be announced on Nov. 9, and a Facebook page is needed to vote. Click here to vote for UPMC CancerCenter's video.
The top three contestants will win cash prizes for donation to the breast cancer charity of their choice. UPMC is competing for Dignity Robes, an organization that sews robes for women undergoing radiation treatment for breast cancer.
More than 260 organizations entered this year's competition.
