It was 40 seconds for the ages Tuesday evening as several hundred Lexington Medical Center employees donned pink gloves and danced a dance of celebration for breast-cancer survivors.

The sounds of Katy Perry’s “Fireworks” echoing from the rear of the hospital campus provided the backdrop for a music video the hospital is producing as part of a national competition.

Lexington Medical doctors, nurses, administrators and other support staff — including several breast-cancer survivors — gathered on the hospital grounds Tuesday to tape the final 40 seconds of the video that will be submitted to the national Medline “Pink Glove Dance” video contest. The nationwide event encourages breast-cancer awareness and prevention, and Lexington Medical Center is among nationwide hospitals taking part in the competition. The winning group will be awarded $10,000 to go to the breast-cancer charity of its choice.

“We trying to highlight breast cancer and breast-cancer survivors,” Lexington Medical Center’s director of marketing, Mark Shelley, said. “It’s telling a story and highlighting our employees who are breast-cancer survivors.”
