Streamlight Inc. recently contributed more than $75,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), a not-for-profit organization with a mission to achieve prevention of and a cure for breast cancer. Since 2010, Streamlight has donated $525,000 to the organization from sales proceeds of its “pink” flashlight products.
Streamlight offers a series of pink lights imprinted with the BCRF logo, designed to raise awareness of the disease. For every pink Nano Light®, pink ProTac HL, and pink Strion LED sold, $1, $3 and $5 respectively is donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
“Breast cancer affects millions of women and their families, and Streamlight is proud to continue doing our part to help raise money for a cure for this devastating disease,” said Loring Grove, Streamlight’s global brand manager, and a breast cancer survivor.
The American Cancer Society estimates that this year, 232,670 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and 40,000 will die from the disease. Men also are affected, with 2,360 men expected to be diagnosed, and 430 to die from the disease in 2014.
