Montreal - A group of scientists from McGill University decided to do something a little bit different while trying to raise funds for their cancer research centre. They got a sponsor, a choreographer, started dancing and made a video.
"I came to dance, dance, dance, dance ..." is how the dance video Dynamite by Taio Cruz begins. And dance these dedicated scientists, lab technicians, students and volunteers do in a new video they've released, all to raise funds for cancer.
The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre (GCRC) is affiliated with McGill University Medical program in Montreal.
The GCRC focuses its activities and innovations on developing and implementing programs that integrate fast-tracking fundamental research, training for students, postdoctoral fellows, professionals and employees, as well as the promotion of cancer information to the general public.
The video is sponsored by Medicom and during the scenes shot in the labs, all the scientists and technicians are "wearing all my favorite brands" (as the song goes), the Safetouch brand of gloves.
Medicom will make a donation to the GCRC for every click the video receives on their YouTube channel.
Both Rosalind and Morris Goodman (for whom the GCRC is named) participate in the video itself. "Team Spirit ... Against A Lonely Disease" and "Today's Knowledge ... For Tomorrow's Cure" are the messages that Morris and Rosalind, respectively held up.
Morris Goodman also joins Faculty Dr.'s Phil Gold and Richard Levin in a number of dance sequences.
A choreographer, Adonna Greaves, was brought in to produce and choreograph the video. Greaves also appears in the video and is herself, a breast cancer survivor.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and by following the link to the YouTube video, you too can help these brilliant and very creative scientists find a cure.
