Streamlight, a leading provider of high-performance lighting equipment, has donated $752,300 and 15,000 research hours over the 11 years it has helped support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), a not-for-profit organization seeking to prevent and cure breast cancer. Each October, Streamlight proudly recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness Month, donating proceeds from its pink line of lights to BCRF.

In 2018/2019, Streamlight donated $27,000 in sales proceeds to BCRF from 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, $2, and $5, respectively.

A number of Streamlight employees have been affected by breast cancer and, given the tight-knit company culture, the company’s management wanted to contribute in some way to finding new treatments for the disease. In 2008, the company’s management decided to create a line of pink flashlights and donate the proceeds to BCRF.

“As breast cancer research continues at an unprecedented pace, Streamlight is proud to contribute to BCRF’s efforts to find a cure and to bring awareness to this terrible disease,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “We count a number of employees among those who are breast cancer survivors, and we are steadfast in our determination to promote such a worthy cause."

In 2019, the American Cancer Society estimates that more than 269,000 women will have been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and nearly 42,000 will die from the disease. Men also are affected, with 2,670 men expected to be diagnosed, and 500 expected to die from the disease.

The BCRF pink Nano Light, Siege AA, and Strion LED have MSRPs of $13.10, $55.06, and $206.35, respectively. All lights come with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
