STREAMLIGHT® MARKS 13 YEARS SUPPORTING BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION
Company Donated $22K in 2020 for Breast Cancer Research
EAGLEVILLE, PA, July 7, 2021 – Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting equipment, donated $22,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), a not-for-profit organization seeking to prevent and cure breast cancer. 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% since 1989.
Each year, 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.
