It is one thing to produce a great product that people love and be a successful car company. But it takes a special kind of company to give back in the way Hyundai does. Especially when it comes to kids battling cancer.
Hyundai Hope on Wheels and Hyundai dealers will award 18 hospitals with a $50,000 Hyundai Impact Grant for pediatric cancer research to help end childhood cancer. The Impact Grant supports the programmatic needs of pediatric oncology. The grant may also be used to support direct patient assistance programs, such as enrichment programs, play room/teen center equipment, family on-site support, educational initiatives, or other efforts to improve care and cure for kids fighting cancer.
In addition to the Impact Grant winner, Hope On Wheels will soon announce the winners of its Hyundai Scholar and Young Investigator Grants. This year alone, HHOW will award more than $13 million in new pediatric cancer grants. Since 1998, the program has funded $115 million in research to Children’s Oncology Group (COG) member institutions nationwide. The program also creates awareness about the importance of the disease, which is the leading cause of death by disease in children in the United States.
The Impact Grant will be presented during handprint ceremonies that will take place at each awarded hospital between July – August. During the ceremony, HHOW will commemorate local-area children affected by cancer. The kids will be invited to place their handprints on a white 2016 Hyundai Tucson to commemorate their fight against the disease. The generosity is amazing. We could all learn a thing or two from their example.
