CarolinaEast Medical Center in New Bern has released its Pink Glove Dance video as part of a breast cancer awareness fundraiser.
The video includes members of the Havelock Fire and Rescue Department, which is raising money for its cancer care fund through its Brave Enough to Wear Pink campaign. That fund provides money to help with the needs of area cancer patients.
The hospital is participating with the fire department in the 2013 Pink Glove Dance for Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. It’s a video online contest in which the video that gets the most votes receives a $25,000 donation to the breast cancer organization of its choice.
Voting is scheduled to open on Oct. 25 and run through Nov. 8, with one vote per person per email address per day. Voting will be done online at www.pinkglovedance.com.
For now, the video is posted at www.youtube.com/watch?v=utbwcgh7BL0&feature=youtu.be
The Havelock Fire and Rescue Department is continuing its Brave Enough to Wear Pink campaign throughout the month. Each Friday, fire department personnel will replace their normal blue uniforms with the specially designed pink T-shirts. The shirts as well as hats are available for purchase for $20 each at the West End Fire Station, the city’s main fire station, Havelock City Hall and at the gift shop of CarolinaEast Medical Center in New Bern.
The campaign is in its fourth year, and last year raised $10,400 to support the needs of area cancer patients, needs that are sometimes not covered by insurance.
