High-performance lighting equipment manufacturer Streamlight Inc. has donated $22,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), a not-for-profit organization seeking to prevent and cure breast cancer.

An annual effort, Streamlight donates the proceeds from sales of the pink Nano Light key chain light, the pink Siege AA ultra-compact lantern, and the pink Strion LED tactical light. For each of the lights, Streamlight donates $1.00, $2.00, and $5.00, respectively.

“Our commitment to BCRF is steadfast, as we count a number of Streamlight employees among those who are breast cancer survivors,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “Streamlight is proud to support BCRF, which is the highest-rated breast cancer charity in the United States.”

In 2008, the company’s management team decided to create a line of pink flashlights and donate the proceeds to BCRF. Given the tight-knit company culture, the team wanted to contribute in some way to finding new treatments for the disease.

According to 2021 BCRF estimates, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every two minutes. More than 43,000 women and 500 men will die from the disease this year. Because of research conducted by organizations like BCRF, deaths from breast cancer have decreased by 41 percent since 1989.

Donations to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, and metastasis. To learn more about Streamlight’s high-performance products and other Lights for a Cause, visit Streamlight.com.
