Chino- The City of Chino Police Department has partnered with the Chino Valley Medical Center (CVMC) to participate in Medline’s Pink Glove Dance Competition for the third time and has chosen The Let It Be Foundation to receive the award money if they win the contest.
Medline’s Pink Glove Competition is a breast cancer prevention campaign that unites the community, healthcare practitioners and survivors to raise money for a cure and to honor those who have been affected. The original Pink Glove Dance video debuted on YouTube in 2009, where 200 people from Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon danced in support of breast cancer awareness.
Last year, CVMC took first place in the Small Bed Category that brought $10,000 for the win which was donated to Relay for Life. Also, taking a second place win in the School Health category. The Let it Be Foundation was started by the Rosen Family and says, “To understand that when a family is confronted with a life threatening childhood diagnosis, it is just too big to fight alone.” This foundation assists and cares for families who have children suffering through life-threatening diagnosis. Christen Grelling, MSN, FNP, PHN and Interim Chief Nursing Officer of CVMC states, “We are thrilled to dance for a great cause. We want to bring awareness to the survivors, they are our heroes.”
