November is American Diabetes Month, and in an effort to raise awareness of this serious health problem and assist researchers in finding a cure, Streamlight in will donate a portion of sales proceeds of the Red Nano Light, a miniature key chain light, to the American Diabetes Association Research Foundation.
Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes. Another 86 million have pre-diabetes and are at risk for type 2 diabetes. Recent estimates predict that as many as one in three American adults will have diabetes by 2050 unless steps are taken to stop the disease.
Streamlight will donate $1.00 to the organization for each Red Nano Light sold, as part of the company’s Lights for a Cause program. Proceeds will help support research to prevent and find a cure for diabetes, a group of diseases marked by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both.
“This Red Nano Light is Streamlight’s way of helping increase public awareness of this critical health issue which affects so many Americans,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “We’re proud to use our Lights for a Cause program to benefit the American Diabetes Association Research Foundation as it seeks to find a cure for this disease, and to improve the lives of all people affected by it.”
