Streamlight® Inc. a leading provider of high-performance flashlights, announced it has introduced the pink key-chain Nano Light®, designed to help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Streamlight will donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for each pink Nano Light sold.
"Breast cancer claims tens of thousands of lives each year just in the United States," said Streamlight President Brad Penney. "We are committed to supporting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in its mission to find a cure for breast cancer."
Penney noted the American Cancer Society reported estimates that more than 192,000 women will contract breast cancer this year and that 40,170 will die as a result.
The pink Nano Light measures 1.47 inches in length and boasts a white LED that delivers 10 lumens with a 100,000-hour lifetime. The light's parabolic LED area optimizes beam performance. Made with machined aircraft aluminum, the light runs up to eight hours, powered by four IEC-LR41 coin cells. It features a rotating on/off head switch.
The pink Nano Light has a non-rotating snap hook for easy one-handed operation and a double-sided fob that features the Breast Cancer Pink Ribbon on one side and the Streamlight logo on the other side.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, founded in 1993, is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and genetic research as well as increasing public awareness about good breast health. A minimum of 86 percent of all funds raised goes to breast cancer research grants and awareness programs.
