Hershey Medical Center’s Pink Glove Dance viral video has taken second place!  For the second year in a row, the hospital submitted a video featuring its staff wearing pink gloves to a national campaign.  Thousands of viewers voted online for hundreds of video submissions and Penn State raised $10,000 for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition!

The Pink Glove Dance was created by Medline Industries, Inc., a nationwide medical supply company to promote breast cancer awareness while allowing cancer organizations to earn money for their programs and services.  Last year, Penn State entered the competition for the first time and won $5,000 for the PBCC.  This year, the medical center placed second and raised more than $12,000 total to support the PBCC and breast cancer survivors across the state.  THANK YOU PENN STATE HERSHEY!
