Hyundai Hope On Wheels
In 1998, Hyundai and a group of New England-area dealers joined the fight against pediatric cancer by supporting a local initiative to support the Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This activity quickly grew nationwide and soon became Hyundai Hope On Wheels. Hyundai Hope On Wheels is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, that is committed to helping kids fight cancer. The goals of the organization are to fund research and to create awareness for childhood cancer. Hyundai Motor America and its more than 830 dealers and customers support the cause with a donation from every new vehicle sold. In 2022, Hyundai Hope On Wheels will surpass $200 million in life-time donations to pediatric cancer research in the United States.
Why Pediatric Cancer?
Hyundai and its dealers are committed to Better products, Better service, and Better society. Through acts of better, we donate to charitable efforts to make benefit society. Kids are the future and they deserve every opportunity to grow, play and learn in a world free of pediatric cancer. Every 36 minutes a child is diagnosed with the disease in the US. Despite advancement in research, one in five diagnosed will not survive. Pediatric cancer is the leading disease related cause of death for US children. At Hyundai Hope On Wheels, our goal is to fund pediatric cancer research, to drive innovative research and to create new discoveries that increase the survival rates of the disease.
