GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - A group of Bellin Health employees and cancer survivors strutted their stuff to raise awareness about breast cancer.

It was part of a flash mob at Lambeau Field that was filmed for a competition called "Pink Glove Dance."

The final video will incorporate other scenes from around the area and will even include some Packers players. It's all part of a nationwide competition involving hospitals across the country.

Should they win, proceeds will go to Ribbon of Hope, a local non-profit that fights cancer.

"This is an opportunity for us to raise awareness for breast cancer awareness and engage our staff," Bellin Health's Jody Wilmet says. "For this, it's an engagement strategy, it's fun for them to do and it make them feel like they're making a difference other than their every day commitment that they have to our patients."

"You may not need it for money, you may need it for support," Jill Bilinski of Ribbon of Hope adds. "You may need it for help getting awake, help for gas, getting to your appointments. I mean the help it does is awesome for a lot of people."

The competition is organized by Medline, a manufacturer of pink gloves. It began back in 2009.
