Aria Health Marks the 27th Anniversary of

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

with Pink Glove Dance

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is turning 27 this october and the staff at Aria Health is celebrating this anniversary in a special way - by pulling on pink gloves and showing off their dance moves to raise awareness about early detection.

About 40 employees of the hospital, some of whom are breast cancer survivors, made a dance video and entered it in the second annual national Pink Glove Dance video competition held by Medline Industries, Inc. They're competing with organizations across the United States and Canada to win thousands of dollars for the charity of their choice. For Aria, that charity is the American Cancer Society.

The Aria dancers rehearsed their routine twice, and then performed in three separate areas of the hospital, including the helicopter pad. "We danced to 'You Won't Dance Alone,'" says Debbie Sinclair, Director of Radiation Oncology at Aria Health and a Pink Glove Dance participant. "We thought that was very appropriate."

Public judging of the Pink Glove Dance videos ends November 2.  First prize is $10,000, second is $5,000, and third is $2,500. To vote for Aria's Pink Glove Dance video, go to www.PinkGloveDance.com and search for Aria Health.
