Chino Valley Medical Center wins 2nd in School Health Category of Medline's Pink Glove Dance Competion
11/5/2015 Chino, CA—The votes are in and today School Health Corporation
announced that Chino Valley Medical Center won Second Place in the School
Health Category of Medline's Pink Glove Dance Competition. CVMC also
took home first place in the Small Bed Category granting $10,000 to their
designated charity, Relay For Life.
The first Pink Glove Dance video was created in 2009 and quickly went viral.
To date, the video has received more than 14 million views. As a result
of the overwhelming response to the original Pink Glove Dance video, Medline
launched the Pink Glove Dance competition in 2011. Participants must create
a dance video to a catchy beat to help heighten awareness of breast cancer.
To encourage schools to get involved, School Health Corporation sponsored
a special award (School Health Category) to the top three teams that received
the highest number of votes overall with a participating school. Chino
Valley Medical Center won First Place in the Small Bed Category of the
Pink Glove Dance Competition as well as Second Place in the School Health
Category. By winning Second in the School Health Category, a School Health
Gift card will be given to the participating schools and an additional
donation will be given to Relay For Life, CVMC's designated charity.
"The dynamic and engaging collaboration between CVMC, the Chino schools,
and the community is what helped this video successfully enhance awareness
of Breast Cancer," adds John Blenkinsopp, Chief Nursing Officer at
CVMC. "We are grateful to the school's administration, our local,
police fire and ambulance services for valuing community activities and
their partnership. We hope they are as proud of the video as we are, and
proud of the support we were all able to give to our local charity to
fight cancer." Don Lugo High School and Walnut Elementary participated
in Chino Valley Medical Center's video, along with multiple community
members and organizations.
Chino Valley Medical Center wants to thank the community for their involvement.
This was not only a victory for all who participated and voted, but also
a victory for Breast Cancer Awareness.
