Are you ready to put on your dancing gloves and become a video star?
Mary Greeley Medical Center and McFarland Clinic are putting out the call for volunteers to help raise awareness of breast cancer by taking part in the Pink Glove Dance on Tuesday, September 17, at Jack Trice Stadium. Participants will be asked to don pink gloves and do a few simple dance moves for a video that will be entered into the Pink Glove Dance contest.
MedLine, a company that manufactures surgical gloves, sponsors the Pink Glove Dance every year and thousands of hospitals across the country take part. Hospitals are asked not only to showcase their facility, but also their community.
The Ames event is sponsored by the William R. Bliss Cancer Center, a service of Mary Greeley and McFarland, and the Iowa State University Thielen Student Health Center. Organizers are hoping for a turnout of at least 500 on September 17.
Both individuals and groups from the Ames community and the ISU community are encouraged to participate. Participants should plan to arrive at 5 p.m. and filming will begin at 6 p.m. Parking will be available in Lot 85E, which is just outside the northeast gate (Gate 1) at Jack Trice Stadium. If needed, additional parking will be available in C6, directly north of Lot 85E, across South 4th Street. Please wear pink and/or black clothing. Free will donations will be collected, with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.
Release forms can be filled out online and brought to the stadium, or can be filled out the day of prior to the event. Participants under the age of 18 will require a parent’s signature.
