Walla Walla Police Dance Video in Cancer Research Contest

Posted: Updated:

WALLA WALLA, WA - Walla Walla Police Officers and the group "Just Us Girls Sharing" need your help to raise money to support cancer patients.

Police and "JUGS" have teamed up to make a video for the Pink Glove Dance competition. The video that collects the most votes during this national contest, wins the top prize of $25,000. 

Walla Walla Police say if their video wins, the prize money will go to assist breast cancer patients undergoing treatment at Providence St. Mary Regional Cancer Center. 

You can vote daily with each e-mail address you have. You only have to register each e-mail address once to vote every day.

Voting begins on Friday, October 25th at 10 AM, and lasts 10 days.

In order to register for the competition, teams must have raised at least $2,000 for an organization that promotes breast cancer awareness and treatment.

The Walla Walla Police Department accomplished that by teaming up with JUGS and raising $2,895 for Providence St. Mary Medical Center's "special needs fund" for breast cancer patients.

The funds are used to cover costs associated with breast cancer treatments that are not covered by insurance. 

The money was raised through a silent auction, open to all City employees, with items donated by numerous Walla Walla Valley businesses, as well as private cash donations. 

The idea for the event began as a way to raise funds needed to enter a video production contest in support of breast cancer awareness. 

The annual video competition, known as the "Pink Glove Dance", is sponsored by Medline Industries, a medical supply company in Illinois.
