Baptist Health Paducah

Paducah, KY

What brings together a hospital and high school football? Why would enthusiastic fans forgo their traditional team colors, red and blue, for pink?

It’s breast cancer awareness through the Pink Glove Dance.

Three-year competitor Baptist Health Paducah enlisted their communities for this year’s video, blending the fighting spirit of football with the spiritedness of breast cancer survivors, led by one of our nurses (Cindy Adams, joined by previous video stars Patty Harrison and Jane Viterisi).

First, the new consolidated McCracken County High School hosted cross-town rival, Paducah Tilghman. Two weeks later, Paducah Tilghman hosted neighboring Mayfield, Ky., for the 100th anniversary of Kentucky’s second-oldest high school rivalry on what the Paducah and Mayfield mayors jointly proclaimed “Mayfield-Tilghman Pink Glove Day.”

In all, more than 14,000 west Kentuckians helped spread the message that early detection of breast cancer saves lives and that hope and courage indeed can “change the world.”
