Pink gloves swayed left and right and twirled all around at Citizens Medical Center - and it's being seen nationally.
The Victoria hospital shot a Pink Glove Dance video to Pink's "Raise Your Glass" with more than 250 of its staff members to spread the word about breast cancer awareness and prevention.
The video is now looking for votes against the other competing videos.
The top three winners receive a donation in their name to the breast cancer charity of its choice.
"Our workers were so excited and inspired to be part of our own Pink Glove Dance," said Shannon Spree, marketing coordinator. "It was not only a lot of fun to participate, but the awareness and discussion about breast cancer we're going to create from the video is the real satisfaction we're hoping to take away from this experience."
The original video was shot in 2009 by Medline Industries Inc., which also produces the gloves.
Winners will be announced Oct. 28.
