(Victor Valley)– Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) has officially entered the 2016 Medline Pink Glove Dance video competition this week, for a chance to win a $15,000 donation to Susan G. Komen Inland Empire, and to support breast cancer prevention. These dedicated dancers need your vote!
The Pink Glove Dance is the only campaign of its kind to bring together nearly a quarter million healthcare professionals, patients and communities to celebrate hope for a cure. It’s also the only competition to honor all who’ve been affected by the disease through the joy of dancing.
“To think that hundreds of ARMC employees joined together to make this video a reality is truly inspiring,” said Associate Hospital Administrator, Professional Services, Deborah Pease, “Our video is a meaningful and memorable way to remember, honor and support those dealing with breast cancer and we’re so excited to be part of this movement.”

History of Medline’s Pink Glove Dance: Back in 2009, Medline Industries, Inc. turned everyday exam gloves from blue to pink to help create a comfortable, friendly and open dialogue about breast cancer between nurses and patients. This same year, Medline created the original Pink Glove Dance video with hospital workers at a Portland, Ore. hospital. A few years later, Medline launched the Pink Glove Dance video competition. The video competition has inspired nearly 650 dance videos and raised more than $1.2 million for breast cancer charities nationwide.
