2013 Pink Glove Dance Includes Baptist Health
By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Baptist Health Paducah is asking for community support in the annual Pink Glove Dance video contest.
The hospital has entered its third annual Pink Glove Dance contest, which raises breast cancer awareness, encourages women to get mammograms, and could win prize money for the Kentucky Cancer.
Voting began at noon on Friday, Oct. 25, and continues until midnight Friday, Nov. 8, at PinkGloveDance.com. You can view the Baptist Health Paducah video by following the link at the bottom of the page. Supporters can vote once every day from any e-mail account.
The hospital’s video has finished in the nation’s top 8 the last two years. If it finishes in the top three this year, it will win up to $25,000 in prize money for the Kentucky Cancer Program’s mammography services and Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear’s Horses and Hope program.
“We want to win the contest to enhance the breast cancer education and screenings provided by the Kentucky Cancer Program,” said Dona Rains, director of marketing and planning. “Each vote also is important because it raises awareness for mammograms, which can save lives.”
This year’s video features 14,200 people from three local high schools; the mayors of Paducah and Mayfield; a professional football player; dozens of breast cancer survivors and hundreds of Baptist Health Paducah employees. It stars Cindy Adams, RN, a one-year breast cancer survivor. Adams shares the stage with fellow breast cancer survivors and even the Tennessee Titans’ George Wilson, whose mother, Wanda, is a Baptist nurse aide.
