According to SignonSanDiego more than 150 nurses and staff members in 14 departments donned pink gloves and boogied down the hallways last month as part of a breast cancer awareness campaign that can be seen on YouTube starting today.
The caregivers-turned-dance-crew are part of Pink Glove Dance: The Sequel produced by medical supply manufacturer Medline Industries. The original Pink Glove video debuted last November on YouTube and has had more than 11.5 million views.
Medline spokesman John Marks said the company donates $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for every case of pink examination gloves it sells. The company has given the foundation more than $600,000 in the last five years, he said, with the money going to fund mammograms for women who can’t afford them.
