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.
