During Breast Cancer Awareness Month this past October, WCA Hospital and LINKS Charity invited the community to join them filming of the Pink Glove Dance.
Their goal was not only to raise awareness for the local fight against breast cancer, but also celebrate the courage of those who have battled breast cancer.
The Pink Glove Dance was a video competition sponsored by Medline Industries Inc., manufacturer of the pink gloves and producer of the original Pink Glove Dance video.
To thank WCA Hospital, LINKS Charity and the Jamestown community for their performance in the 2012 Pink Glove Dance competition, on behalf of Medline, Debbie Sellari far right, Medline accounts manager, presents, from left, Betsy Wright, WCA Hospital president and chief executive officer; Dianne Courtney-Freemen, patient care specialist and senior mammographer, and Dorothy Carlson, mammographer and patient navigator, a framed print to be hung within the WCA Center for Imaging & Medical Arts.
Representing Medline, Debbie Sellari, account executive, recently presented employees at WCA Hospital with a framed poster which will be hung in the WCA Center for Imaging and Medical Arts to thank them for their outstanding performance.
WCA Hospital's and LINKS Charity's original video featured Katy Perry's hit single "Part of Me," focused on six local breast cancer survivors, and the finale was filmed at Strider Field along with the Jamestown High School marching band. The video can be viewed on YouTube by searching "WCA Hospital Pink Glove Dance."
Medline served as a presenting sponsor of the second annual LINKS Pink Walk: A Celebration of Courage in October at the Chautauqua Mall.
The event also celebrated the courage of those who have battled breast cancer and included the premier of The Pink Glove Dance video on a large screen. The 2013 LINKS Pink Walk is scheduled for Oct. 5 at the Chautauqua Mall and will once again raise money to support local breast cancer care at WCA Hospital.
