Pink Hammer

They're called Tomboy Tools, hammers and screwdrivers and stuff, all ergonomically designed for women so we can work like a man, but not break a nail or work up a sweat.

Instead of being sold in stores, they're sold like Tupperware and Avon at house parties.

So, that's nice, but what does that have to do with Healthwise? Well, one of those hammers is pink now, for good reason.

"We've just started a partnership with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, because we have very common goals. The Komen Foundation is interested in empowering and educating women to take their health in to their own hands,"said Donna Moore of Tomboy Tools.

"It's wonderful and I love the fact that the hammer actually says hammer out breast cancer right on it, I think that's great," said Kim Fluhrer, a Home Show Host. 

Yes, it has writing on it, but it's more obvious that it's pink. A portion of the sales from this pink hammer in the line is going to the Komen Foundation. 

The Race for the Cure is this Saturday at the Frazier Alumni Pavilion on the Tech campus. The race begins at 8:15 Saturday morning. Register at the South Plains Mall tomorrow near Luby's or at 6:30am on race day.
