History of Medline’s Pink Glove Dance
Back in 2009, Medline Industries, Inc. turned everyday exam gloves from blue to pink to help create a comfortable, friendly and open dialogue about breast cancer between nurses and patients. This same year, Medline created the original Pink Glove Dance video with hospital workers at a Portland, Ore. hospital. A few years later, Medline launched the Pink Glove Dance video competition, which has brought together 250,000 healthcare professionals, patients, survivors and communities to celebrate hope for a cure and honor all who have been affected by the disease – all through the joy of dancing. The Medline Pink Glove Dance video competition has inspired 650 dance videos and raised more than $1.2 million for breast cancer charities nationwide. In addition, Medline has donated $1.7 million to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) in support of its mission to save lives through early detection and offering free mammograms for women in need.
