Hyundai is committed to philanthropy with easily its largest dedication going towards helping to find a cure for pediatric cancer through its nonprofit organization, Hyundai Hope on Wheels.
And, this year as a part of its initiative and also in honor of September, National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Hyundai Motor America and its network of dealers are making a grand donation of $10.25 million to pediatric cancer research here in the U.S.
This donation is certainly not the first Hyundai has made to the cause in fact, to date, since Hyundai Hope on Wheels was first established in 1998, it has donated over $72.0 million for U.S. pediatric cancer research.
“With childhood cancer remaining the leading cause of death from disease for children in the U.S., there is an urgent need for more research that can lead to better cures for our children,” says Peter C. Adamson, Chairman of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). “Hyundai and its dealers are bridging the widening gap in childhood cancer research funding and have quickly become one of the largest and more innovative grant providers in the field. We are grateful for their support and efforts to bring our cause to the forefront of the national dialogue.”1.
In an effort to thank all of its customers who purchases of new Hyundai models helped with the large donation(s), Hyundai is launching a new social media campaign called “Every Handprint Tells a Story” with small handprints featuring the Hope on Wheels logo in representation of the hopes, dreams and journeys of the poor children diagnosed with cancer, each day.
