Not only does wearing these gloves increase awareness for breast cancer during National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, but a portion of the sales of these gloves is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to fund free mammograms for individuals who cannot afford them.

In 2009, the Pink Glove Dance began in Portland, OR at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center with 200 dancers wearing pink gloves. The video has since generated more than 13 million views on YouTube®. More importantly, the video prompted millions of heartwarming reactions filled with inspiration and joy from breast cancer survivors and their families and friends. The PGD competition began in 2011 and since then, over 80,000 people have danced in pink gloves! This year, each team must donate $2,000 to a breast cancer-related organization, and the top three videos (chosen by public votes) will win a donation to a Medline-approved breast cancer charity of their choice.
The more the merrier! These recruiting posters can be used to gather people for your organization’s PGD video shoot. Let’s get everyone involved!

In 2005, Medline launched a breast cancer awareness campaign and partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation to save lives through educational resources, early detection programs, and free mammograms. The NBCF’s Beyond The Shock® is a comprehensive online guide to understanding breast cancer. It is a resource for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, a place for loved ones to gain a better understanding of the disease and a tool for doctors to share information.
Since 2005, Medline has committed more than $1.2 million to the NBCF to help fund mammograms for individuals who cannot afford them as well as other educational and prevention resources.
