GSNI is collaborating with OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center to produce a Pink Glove Dance Video on Sunday, September 22, 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., at Saint Anthony Medical Center, 5666 East State Street, in Rockford. The filming will take place in front of the hospital. In case of rain, it will be moved to the atrium.
The Pink Glove Dance Video Competition is aimed at raising breast cancer awareness. Once the video is complete, it will be uploaded to the Pink Glove Dance website where people can vote for their favorite video. First place will receive $25,000; second place will receive $10,000, and third place receives $5,000 to be donated to a charity of the winner’s choice that supports breast cancer research. GSNI and OSF have chosen American Cancer Society—Making Strides Again Breast Cancer to be the recipient of any support.
Girl Scouts of all ages are welcome to participate! Girls should wear their vest or sash to identify as a Girl Scouts along with anything pink. Leaders and Girl Scout alumnae are welcome to be part of this event and also encouraged to wear pink. OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center will provide the pink gloves to be used in the video!
