Help Hope on Wheels Help Kids Fight Cancer

Did you know that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month? That means Hope on Wheels is back in full swing and collecting donations yet again to support pediatric cancer research. Hyundai fans like you in Anchorage, Alaska, can help the cause too! So learn more by reading on and discover ways that you can participate.

What is Hope on Wheels?

Hope on Wheels is a non-profit organization supported by Hyundai. It has been in operation since 1998, and its mottos of "Helping Kids Fight Cancer" is a reflection of its mission. Since its founding, it has raised more than $130 million to back its purpose.

Why Does This Organization Matter?

A child is diagnosed with some form of cancer approximately every 36 minutes. As you can thus imagine, there are many youth who are affected and in need of care. Unfortunately, only four percent of funding from the National Cancer Institute is reserved for the research of pediatric cancer. That is why Hyundai is stepping up to the plate to provide further financial assistance.

You can even leave a story or message on the Handprint of Hope page, and for every submission, the automaker will donate $1 to pediatric cancer research.
