Western Baptist, Murray State team up for Pink Glove Dance

Around Western Baptist Do you like to dance? I don’t know about you, but I think dancing is always more fun with a good partner. Western Baptist Hospital has a great partner for its 2012 Pink Glove Dance –Murray State University.

MSU Racers basketball coach Steve Prohm showed a few of his best moves and put on pink gloves this week, along with Western Baptist and other Murray State representatives, to announce the breast cancer awareness partnership.

WBH and MSU staff in pink gloves Western Baptist employees showed off their dancing skills last year and placed 6th in last year’s national Pink Glove Dance competition. Murray State also knows a little about high rankings. The men’s basketball team was ranked in the Top 10 this past season as the last undefeated team in the country.

With the region’s help, we expect this year’s video to be off the charts. It will be produced by Murray State’s digital media crew this summer and feature hospital staff and university staff and students, all wearing pink gloves.

All of our dancing will be for a good cause. One in eight women will develop breast cancer, making it the leading cause of cancer death among women. The awareness video will be distributed during October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month – in a social media campaign, reminding women to get annual mammograms for early detection.
