“Everyone involved in the Pink Glove Dance video had so much pleasure in showing a fun side of health care for a great cause,” said Effingham Hospital and Care Center CEO Norma Jean Morgan. “It was wonderful to know that just by dancing we were working to potentially raise a great amount of money for such a significant cause - breast cancer. There are few people who have not been touched in some way by breast cancer, and by creating this video we are doing one more thing to raise awareness and help breast cancer survivors, fighters and supporters receive the help they need and deserve.”

Voting ends Oct. 21.  Help Effingham win $10,000 for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
