AKRON, OH—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 26, 2019
Ken-Tool, a provider of specialty hand tools, has announced its “Ken-Tool Cares” online video contest in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, throughout October of 2019.
Ken-Tool will offer only pink-colored T45A tire irons for sale through their distribution channel from Oct 1-Oct 31, 2019. Participants will be encouraged to show their support by purchasing a pink T45A and making a short video of themselves with the tool. Contestants are encouraged to be creative; e.g., demonstrating how they use the tool for mounting or demounting a tire, telling a personal story about their relationship to cancer, etc.
A percentage of the proceeds of the pink T45A tire iron sales will be donated to The Lee Giller Male Breast Cancer Fund to support breast cancer research and the Camp Quality USA Ohio Chapter.
“Ken-Tool is pleased to take a stand against breast cancer, which is the second most common kind of cancer in women. While breast cancer is much more prevalent in women, over 3,000 men are expected to be diagnosed with this disease as well this year” said Ben Graham. “As many others have, the Ken-Tool family has been affected by breast cancer. By raising awareness about breast cancer and breast cancer screenings, we all can work together to keep women and men healthy.”
