…can you help in a nationwide competition?

For the second consecutive year, more than 1,000 Geisinger Health System employees and community members put on their pink gloves and danced for breast cancer awareness and a chance to win up to $25,000 for the American Cancer Societies of central and northeastern Pennsylvania.

The nationwide Pink Glove Dance Competition, sponsored by Medline Industries, Inc., is a video competition with participants at Geisinger locations dancing to the song “Brave” by Sara Bareilles. Three community shoots in Danville, Wilkes-Barre, and Scranton brought in participants ranging from community survivors and their families to Bloomsburg University nursing students and their mascot.

Voting at pinkglovedance.com ends Friday, Nov. 8, and is allowed once per day, per e-mail account through the end of the voting period.
