As part of its annual fundraising effort, McGill University has produced this video, McGill Dances for Cancer Research:
Most of these people aren’t really dancing, so much as just sort of shuffling around in a sort of choreographed way. Still it’s pretty entertaining to watch:
The video includes some of Canada’s top medical researchers. Dr. Phil Gold, one of the gentlemen at 1:45 with no particular rhythm, is a highly decorated scientist who discovered a protein that result in a blood test now widely used in the diagnosis and management of several cancers.
The video is meant raise money for McGill’s Goodman Cancer Research Centre.
Apparently for every hit the video gets, Medicom, a Canadian Medical supply company, will make a donation to support Goodman Centre work.
