Legacy HS embraces Pink Glove Dance opportunity



Mansfield ISD coordinated with Methodist Mansfield Medical Center to help spread the word about breast cancer awareness and prevention through The Pink Glove Dance. The MISD community was invited to join us in starring in a Pink Glove Dance video at the Legacy HS vs. Bryan Adams HS football game on September 13 at Vernon Newsom Stadium. Breast cancer survivors were also encouraged to attend and dance on the field at halftime.

As part of the Pink Glove Dance 2012 competition, Methodist Mansfield’s video will be posted on www.pinkglovedance.com on October 12 along with the videos of the other participants to be viewed by the public. Viewers can vote on their favorite video (voting requires a Facebook® account). The top three winners receive a donation in their name to the breast cancer charity of their choice, such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The winners will be announced November 2 on pinkglovedance.com.

Special thanks to the Legacy HS teen leadership and student council students, cheerleaders, drill team, band, staff and game attendees who all put on pink gloves to join in on the fun. Many of the students wore the LHS Pink Fest t-shirts as a sign of solidarity and spirit for the breast cancer survivors and halftime video event. (Each year, LHS students in Teen Leadership classes and Student Council rally the school and community to raise money for breast cancer research and share awareness through Pink Fest programming and events. Tens of thousands of dollars have been raised during activities for the cause.)
