Paducah hospital, MSU reaches Top 10 in Pink Glove Dance competition | Community Spirit
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Western Baptist Hospital has reached the Top 10 in the Pink Glove Dance competition.
The hospital says voting has been extended to Nov. 2.
Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson, a Paducah native and son of Western Baptist nurse aide Wanda Wilson, has donated a game-worn jersey to be given to one lucky person who votes for the hospital’s Pink Glove Dance video. Details will be announced on Western Baptist’s Facebook page.
Western Baptist and Murray State’s video currently is in 9th place among 260 entries. Last year, Western Baptist finished sixth among 135 participants.
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the hospital uses the video to remind women to get annual mammograms for early detection. The top three vote-getters in the national video contest will receive prizes up to $10,000 for the breast cancer charity of their choice.
Western Baptist and Murray State have designated the Kentucky Cancer Program’s “Just Us Girls” mammography education project as their charity.
Viewers can vote at http://pinkglovedance.com/competition/vote.php through Nov. 2. A Facebook account is required.
