It’s not every day that you see people dancing through the halls at Good Shepherd Hospital. It’s not every day that you find hospital doctors, nurses and staff wearing pink gloves and feather boas to work. But they’ve been up to something over at the hospital here in Barrington and, when I saw what it was, it gave me goosebumps. It’s a video of about 100 Good Shepherd Hospital employees, wearing pink and dancing to Firework, one of my favorite Katy Perry songs. Who knew so many of our local healthcare providers double as dancing divas!?!
They created the video to win a dance competition and it’s a major feat in choreographed camaraderie executed by employees, men and women, from just about every department at the hospital.
From the hospital’s president, Karen Lambert, to its housekeepers, from its doctors to its paramedics, there’s no sign of stage fright over wearing wacky pink accessories while grooving to the beat.
They’re bringing out the boogie in hospital beds, at their desks and through the hospital halls. NOW IT’S OUR TURN to help them dance their way to winning a top prize. Read on to watch their video and cast your vote……
We’re heading into the home stretch here at 365Barrington.com! I just reminded my husband that, after next Sunday, we’ll only be FOUR DAYS AWAY from day 365. Because our site sees so much traffic on weeks when we host community photo contests and because today is the FIRST DAY OF SPRING, I decided now would be a good time to host one more contest before the year is complete. It’s our first ever “Spring Break Photo Contest” and the grand prize will be a great way for our winner to relax and have fun when the vacation is over.
The rules are easy. I just made them up. Anyone is eligible to enter this contest, whether you’ve jetted off to sea or ski or are having a “Staycation” like we are right here at home. If you participated in one of our past photo contests, that’s great! We’d love to see more of your photos this time. All you have to do is submit your favorite photo or photos which answer this question:…Continue Reading
These days, you can find little doses of inspiration in all shapes, sizes and places. People who wouldn’t normally have a public voice are commanding huge audiences with the use of technology, YouTube and the social power of the internet. You may have already heard this 15-year-old’s story. His name is Keenan Cahill. He’s an Irish-American teenager now living in Chicago and he has a rare genetic disorder called Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome.
The disease has no cure, it affects only one in 25,000 people and it disables physical growth after age 8. But, for the past few years, Keenan has been growing a giant fan base lip-syncing to popular songs from the long-gone privacy of his own bedroom.…Continue Reading
