A sea of pink and a whole lot of dancing were going on at one Putnam County elementary school Monday to honor a teacher battling cancer.
Children at Lakeside Elementary School in Hurricane were planning to dance throughout the day to support a teacher who is undergoing treatments for breast cancer. The name of the first grade teacher who has cancer is not being released.
The first wave of the "Pink Glove Dance" started just after 8 a.m., and other dance times were scheduled until the end of the day.
The festivities were being taped and will be submitted to Medline, the maker of the pink gloves, for judging.
If the students win the contest, they will receive $10,000 and plan to donate the money to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, kindergarten teacher Tatum Templeton said.
The students’ video submission will be posted on YouTube later this week. Just search Pink Panthers at Lakeside Elementary.
