BRIDGEPORT -

More than 100 people were dancing at the Meadowbrook Mall on Saturday for a good cause.

Community members and associates from the Cecil B. Highland, Jr. and Barbara B. Highland Cancer Center at United Hospital Center performed a choreographed dance in the Sears court.

The pink glove dance was performed to raise awareness for breast cancer.

The pink gloves were worn to show support for breast health, and honor care givers who take care of patients.

"I felt it was a fun way to get the word out, to have fun, to promote breast cancer awareness, and get information out to them. We also have the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program here. They will be handing out things along with myself for breast cancer awareness," said Peggy Johnson, an RN and UHC's clinical navigator for breast health.

Anyone was welcome to participate in the dance and spectators were encouraged to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness.

Kim Bell of Instep Dance and Fitness Studio choreographed the dance that was set to 'Walking on Sunshine'.
