Mansfield ISD is coordinating with Methodist Mansfield Medical Center to help spread the word about breast cancer awareness and prevention through The Pink Glove Dance. This fun video project with participants sporting pink gloves lets their dancing fingers help call attention to greater public awareness of the disease. The community is invited to join in starring in this Pink Glove Dance video segment to be filmed during the Legacy vs. Bryan Adams football game at 7 p.m. on Sept. 13 inside Vernon Newsom Stadium. Breast cancer survivors are also particularly encouraged to attend and join in the dance on the field during halftime filming. The video will be submitted to a national competition to recognize the best Pink Glove Dance video of 2012.
As part of the Pink Glove Dance 2012 competition, Methodist Mansfield’s video will also be posted on pinkglovedance.com on Oct.12, along with videos of the other national participants to be viewed by the public. Viewers can then vote on their favorite video (voting requires a Facebook account). The top three winners will receive a donation in their name to the breast cancer charity of their choice, such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Winners will be announced Nov. 2 at pinkglovedance.com.
The song used in this year’s videos is “This One’s for the Girls,” by Martina McBride. An interesting side note is that the recording artist gave special permission to use this song specifically for the Pink Glove Dance competition.
