and prevention initiatives
Oct. 1, 2015 – 2015 marks the fifth year that the
Medline Pink Glove Dance video competition has united dancers nationwide, including healthcare
professionals, breast cancer patients and survivors to celebrate and raise
awareness for those still fighting – all through the joy of dance.
The votes are in and Medline announced today that Chino Valley Medical
Center has won first place in the small-bed category for the 2015 Pink
Glove Dance Video Competition.
Determined by public online voting, Chino Valley Medical Center received
18,936 votes, and has won a $10,000 donation from Medline to the breast
cancer charity of its choice, Relay for Life.
"This win means we've succeeded in heightening awareness for breast
cancer," said Dr. James M. Lally, Chief Medical Officer at CVMC.
"The community really pulled together and showed that you can overcome
cancer through creating awareness. Thank you to the community and the
CVMC staff for your support during our journey."
CVMC's winning video represents everyone in the community teaming up
together to fight cancer. More than 200 dancers, including hospital staff
and community members danced while sporting Medline's pink exam gloves
to celebrate hope for a cure for breast cancer, as well as honor those
who have been affected by the disease. Furthermore, as part of the facility's
fundraising efforts during the competition, more than $2,000 was raised
for The Chino Relay for Life Foundation.
"Congratulations to Chino Valley Medical Center for putting together
such an amazing video that has grabbed the attention of thousands of people
from around the country," said Sue MacInnes, chief market solutions
officer, Medline. "Some walk for breast cancer awareness. Others
run. We dance wearing pink gloves for breast cancer awareness and prevention.
It is Medline's unified mission to eradicate breast cancer. The Pink
Glove Dance competition provides communities with an organized event that
supports everyone who's been touched by breast cancer. The participation
from thousands of dancers over the years has helped us make a significant
impact in providing breast cancer related charities with the essential
resources they need to carry out education and prevention initiatives."

About Medline's Pink Glove Dance Campaign
Back in 2009, Medline Industries, Inc. turned everyday exam gloves from
blue to pink. This sparked the beginning of the company's unique breast
cancer education campaign. The introduction of the pink gloves helps take
the scary out of detection exams and reminds nurses about the importance
of creating a comfortable, friendly and open dialogue with patients. A
few years later, Medline created the
Pink Glove Dance video competition, bringing together nearly 200,000 healthcare professionals, patients,
survivors and communities to celebrate hope for a cure and honor all who
have been affected by the disease – all through the joy of dancing.
More than 16 million YouTube® views later, the Medline Pink Glove
Dance competition has inspired nearly 1,000 dance videos and raised more
than $1 million for breast cancer charities nationwide. The original Pink
Glove Dance video can be viewedhere. In addition, Medline has donated $1.6 million to the
National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) in support of its mission to save lives through early detection
and offering free mammograms for women in need.
