WALLA WALLA, WA -- The Walla Walla Police Department needs some back up to win a national competition.

It's called the Pink Glove Dance Competition, and it's all to help breast cancer patients.
The police department teamed up with an organization called "Just Us Girls Sharing" to produce a video, and they need votes to beat out more than 100 other videos nationwide. The video features a cancer survivor, and employees from Walla Walla Police and Walla Walla Fire.

If they get the most votes, they will get a $25,000 check for patients at Providence St. Mary Regional Cancer Center.

"It's such a great cause. Even people with great insurance still have a lot of out of pocket expenses when you go in for treatment. If we win it, it goes to help offset some of those costs," said Walla Walla Police Officer Tim Bennett.

People can vote daily for the video until November 8th, and can vote from as many e-mail addresses they want.
