Pink Glove Dancers Spread Message Through Downtown Portland

A group now known as the Providence Pink Glove Dancers recently spread happiness and its message about breast cancer awareness through the streets of downtown Portland, Ore.

A crowd of more than 250,000 people cheered on the dancers June 5 as they made their way along the Rose Festival’s 3-mile Starlight Parade Route.

The group’s “Pink Glove Dance,” which became viral after being posted on YouTube.com, was developed for a breast cancer awareness campaign between Providence St. Vincent Medical Center and Medline, which produces pink, latex-free, vinyl exam gloves.

Because the parade is held during the evening, the dancers were decked out with glow-in-the-dark discs to illuminate their pink gloves, pink flashing rings, pink glow necklaces and pink lighted glasses.

Nearly 100 Providence employees — including several nurses — from five Providence hospitals made up the entry. Participating hospitals were Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, Providence Portland Medical Center, Providence Milwaukie, Providence Willamette Falls and Providence Newberg.

A new video from the parade can be seen on Providence’s website, www.providence.org/oregon.
