NJSACC will be filming our own PINK GLOVE DANCE to show that New Jersey afterschool professionals support Breast Cancer Awareness.
A World Without Breast Cancer is in Our Hands.
On a personal note, I am the Executive Director of NJSACC and a 2 year Breast Cancer Survivor.
I realize that the media are bombarding us all with Pink Ribbons.
In years past I donated my money and wore the pink ribbon, never suspecting that the disease would touch my life. It did.
Breast Cancer affects 1 in 3 women. It can touch your mothers, sisters, daughters, staff, the children in your program and yourselves.
It is because of the support from my healthcare providers, family, friends, staff and the afterschool professionals of New Jersey I am present here today.
I first viewed the Pink Glove Dance shortly after my first surgery. It made me laugh and cry at the same time.
NJSACC will be handing out the PINK GLOVES for the making of our own PINK GLOVE DANCE, on November 18th, after the last workshop at our conference. We plan on entering this video in the national Pink Glove Dance Competition.
Let us know if you are attending the NJSACC Conference and you can be part of the NJSACC PINK GLOVE DANCE video.
Pink Glove Dance
Original Pink Glove Dance
Two years ago, when Medline produced the original Pink Glove Dance video to raise breast cancer awareness, little did they know that it would take on a life of its own. The video has since generated more 13 million views on YouTube and inspired countless Pink Glove Dance videos and events around the world.
Pink Glove Dance Sequel
The response to the original video from the healthcare community, survivors and family members of survivors was overwhelming and heartwarming. As a result, last year a sequel was created featuring more than 4,000 healthcare workers and breast cancer survivors from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge to New York’s Times Square.
