Hyundai Hope on Wheels Announces September Campaign
Sixty-eight hospitals and non-profit organizations will each be given a $100,000 Hope Grant, to be used in direct research projects and support initiatives of the medical and other professionals involved with children with cancer.
"While we've made progress over the last few decades and now have an 85 percent cure rate, cancer still takes more lives than any other childhood disease," said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America CEO.
"This September, in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Hyundai will shine a nationwide spotlight on this cause and provide more than $6 million in grants for pediatric cancer research and support programs. We love taking on big challenges at Hyundai, and we can think of no more worthy challenge than finding a cure for all forms of pediatric cancer."
According to Hyundai, the Hope on Wheels would have been responsible for the donation of $23 million to children's hospitals and non-profit organizations across the US. More info on both current and past campaigns can be found by accessing this link.
"For the last 12 years Hope on Wheels has supported the fight against childhood cancer in partnership with Hyundai dealers, Hyundai Motor America and others," said Oscar Leeser, Hyundai dealer Principal, Hyundai of El Paso.
