St. V's Creates Pink Glove Dance Video

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Hundreds of hospitals and cancer survivors are strapping on their pink gloves and throwing on their boots for a good cause. All because they're making a video!

The pink glove dance began in Portland, Oregon in 2009, and is sweeping across medical centers everywhere, even in Billings.

The Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon made a video that started it all.

That's why the manufacturer of the pink surgical glove, Medline, decided to get behind the program. But for the second year in a row, St. Vincent Healthcare made a video for the nationwide contest.

St. Vincent Healthcare Marketing Assistant, Abigail Dufner, said her favorite part was working with the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Department.

"That was the coolest group. They were pretty fun. It took a while for them to wear pink, all of them, but they all work pink hats. They all wore pink gloves," said Dufner.

Dufner said it was extra special because of the date the video was filmed.

"It was on 9/11. So, it was kind of a cool thing for them to come together on a day like that," Dufner said.

It features local law enforcement, breast cancer survivors, and community members who are raising awareness for breast cancer.

One survivor, Sandy Raymond, said she enjoyed being in the video.

"That was the most fun, and trying to keep my pink feather boa from catching on fire from the oven," Raymond said.

Dufner said hospitals, and organizations that entered had a 90-second time limit for the contest.

If you want to vote, you can go online next week to www.pinkglovedance.com. The winners will receive a donation to a breast cancer charity of their choice.
