Community rally's together to raise breast cancer awareness
Sep 19, 2011
More than 2,000 residents of Wooster, Ohio, came together to film a video for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Daily Record reports.
Those in the film are wearing pink gloves and are either dancing together in a choreographed dance or performing their own routine that they feel represents breast cancer.
The video, put together by Wooster Community Hospital's development specialist, Tricia James, will be entered in a national Pink Glove Dance competition, the news outlet reports.
Performances have been taped during football games, organized events and more.
Once the film, titled Stop and dance for breast cancer education and awareness, is edited it will showcase all of the various places the dances were performed and will then be sent in for voting, which takes place during the month of October.
"The song that we're using is 'You Won't Dance Alone' by Best Day Ever," James told the news outlet. "No one dances alone in the fight against breast cancer," but rather is supported by their community hospital, family, friends and co-workers. "We're all in this together."
With over 200,000 new cases of the disease in 2010, according to BreastCancer.org, showing support is crucial to helping people fight back.
