Streamlight Inc., manufacturer of high-performance lighting equipment, 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.
