Hyundai Hope on Wheels returns to Washington, D.C. To host its annual “DC Days” for childhood cancer awareness month

Leading Members of Congress join hands with the organization in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

WASHINGTON, D.C. – September 17, 2019 – Hyundai Hope On Wheels® (HHOW), a 501c(3) non-profit organization, announces its annual Hyundai Hope On Wheels DC Days event in the nation’s Capital on September 18th and 19th. This event is held in conjunction with its Childhood Cancer Awareness Month campaign. During the month, the organization will donate $13.2 million to 52 doctor-researchers to support better treatment options and to improve care for children diagnosed with pediatric cancer. A combined $900,000 in grants will be awarded to 3 DC area children’s hospitals: Georgetown, Lombardi Cancer Institute (Washington, DC), Nation Children’s Medical Center (Washington, D.C.) and Kimmel Cancer Institute Johns Hopkins (Baltimore, MD).

The D.C. Days event is designed to bring together numerous stakeholders – elected officials, policy makers, advocates, doctor-researchers and child-families, and to raise awareness of pediatric cancer. While in town, D.C. Days events will include: 1) local area hospital donation ceremonies; 2) Capitol Hill Reception; 3) National Press Conference; 4) Thought Leader’s Luncheon; 5) Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, and 6) Community pop-up handprint ceremony. This year in partnership with the DC metro transit authority, over 43 metro buses will be wrapped and 100 metro stations will include digital message regarding pediatric cancer.

“Hyundai is a company that is committed to the well-being, health and safety of families,” says Jose Munoz, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America. “The Hyundai Hope On Wheels initiative is among the proudest activities we do in partnership with our U.S. dealers. Children are our future. They deserve every opportunity to succeed. We are honored to be in Washington, D.C. with elected officials, policy makers and the childhood cancer community to bring even greater attention to the cause.”

The Hyundai Hope On Wheels campaign theme for 2019 is Every Handprint Tells A Story. With the sale of every new Hyundai, the company and its dealers donation to pediatric cancer research. In the U.S., 15,000 new cases of pediatric cancer – 44 a day – are diagnosed. While 80% of kids with cancer can be cured, pediatric cancer remains the leading disease-related cause of death among children in the U.S. The DC Days activities brings together various stakeholders – the many handprints, if you will – to identify new opportunities to improve cure and care for children with cancer.

Hyundai Hope On Wheels is one of the largest funders of pediatric cancer research in the nation. Along with grants announced earlier this year, Hyundai Hope On Wheels has awarded over $160 million to pediatric cancer research since 1998. With five (5) different grant categories that range from $100,000 to $2.5 million, grants are awarded exclusively to Children’s Oncology Group members through a competitive peer reviewed process. The Scholar Hope Grant and The Young Investigator grants are awarded during the month of September.

“September Childhood Cancer Awareness month is a special time for the Hyundai dealers across America,” says Scott Fink, Board Chair and Hyundai dealer-owner, Hyundai of New Port Richey (New Port Richey, FL) and Hyundai of Wesley Chapel (Wesley Chapel, FL). “We joined the fight against pediatric cancer in 1998. We are inspired by the courage of children fighting cancer. For so many of these children, they travel an uncertain journey to recovery with bravery despite the difficulties ahead. And for far too many, the battle with the disease is not won. With Hyundai Hope On Wheels, we are committed for as long as it takes to insure every child wins his/her fight with this disease.”

On September 18th and 19th, ten (10) Hope Vehicles will travel throughout D.C. to increase awareness for pediatric cancer month. On Friday, September 20th, from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM, the public is invited to participate in the signature pop-up handprint celebration, to be held in the Woodrow Wilson Complex at the Ronald Reagan Building. These handprints signify the community’s support to the issue of childhood cancer awareness. In addition, individuals are also encouraged to show their support during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by wearing a gold ribbon all month long. Every Handprint Tells A Story!

Hyundai Hope on Wheels to award $13.2 million new pediatric cancer grants during childhood cancer awareness month

The non-profit embarks on a nationwide tour throughout September to raise awareness and to announce 52 researcher grant winners at children’s hospitals throughout the nation.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA – August 30, 2019 – Hyundai Hope On Wheels® (HHOW), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, supported by Hyundai Motor America and its U.S. dealers, continues its fight against pediatric cancer and announces plans for Childhood Cancer Awareness month. For September, the non-profit organization has selected 52 new grant winners to receive a combined $13.2 million for pediatric cancer research. In addition to grants announced earlier this year, this brings the Hyundai Hope On Wheels donations to pediatric cancer research to just over $160 million in the United States, since 1998.

The September campaign theme for 10th year is Every Handprint Tells A Story. There are 15,000 new cases of pediatric cancer – about 44 children a day – diagnosed in the United States each year. Although 80% of kids with cancer can be cured, pediatric cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease among U.S. children. With its Every Handprint Tells A Story campaign, Hyundai Hope On Wheels brings together the many stakeholders – the child, families, doctors, hospitals, advocates, donors, and others – who work to identify new ways to find a cure and improve care for children with battling pediatric cancer. When a child is diagnosed, it not only changes their life, but his/her family and broader communal network.

“Hyundai is an international company with big ideas and a bold vision to make the world better, with a corporate philosophy of Lifetime partner in automobile and beyond,” says Jose Munoz, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America. “Key to our vision of a better world is the health, safety, and well-being of children. That’s why for the past 21 years, Hyundai and our U.S. dealers have joined the fight against pediatric cancer. Children are our future; they deserve every opportunity to succeed. We are funding life-saving research, and we are raising more awareness about the importance of the cause with Hyundai Hope On Wheels. Because children deserve to win!”

Hyundai Hope On Wheels is one of the largest funders of pediatric cancer research in the nation. With five (5) different grant categories – ranging from $100,000 to $2.5 million – grants are awarded to Children’s Oncology Group member institutions through a competitive doctor peer reviewed process. The Scholar Hope Grant ($300,000) and The Young Investigator ($200,000) grants are awarded during the month of September. This month, additional donations are made to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/The Jimmy Fund Walk of the Boston Marathon (9/22) and The Run-4-Hope 5K-10K run/walk benefiting the Hyundai Cancer Institute at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (9/29).

Every 36 minutes a child is diagnosed with pediatric cancer. Children deserve to enjoy the simple milestones of childhood like having a birthday party, a first day of school, losing a first tooth, obtain a driver’s license, or get a part-time job. These ordinary milestones of childhood are often missed, when a child is diagnosed with pediatric cancer. In its place are times spent confined to a hospital room, countless surgeries, hair loss, needles and medicines, and even loss of limbs. The reality is there is nothing fun about being a kid with cancer. However, there are so many brave and amazing children whose stories of courage, bravery and hope inspires us.

“As the board chair for Hyundai Hope On Wheels, there is no greater joy than for me than to meet the faces of brave pediatric cancer fighters at children’s hospitals across the nation,” says Scott Fink, Board Chair and Hyundai dealer-owner, Hyundai of New Port Richey (New Port Richey, FL) and Hyundai of Wesley Chapel (Wesley Chapel, FL). “These amazing kids embody the word hope. They exemplify all that’s wonderful about childhood, and they show us as adults the courage of facing adversity. The Hyundai dealers of America joined the fight against pediatric cancer in 1998. For so many children fighting the disease, they travel an uncertain journey to recovery. And, sadly, for far too many others, the battle with the disease is not won. With Hyundai Hope On Wheels, will continue this fight to not only survive the disease, but to thrive.”

Returning for a second year, Ms. Elizabeth Blair (age 12 of Phoenix, AZ) and Carter Gates (age 14 of Colorado Springs, CO) served as the 2019 National Youth Ambassadors. Each will travel the country visiting children’s hospitals and attending events to share their unique messages of hope and courage.

The program was begun in the Boston, MA area and quickly traveled to support children’s hospital throughout the U.S. with research grants to help find cures and to improve care for children fighting cancer.

“The fight to end childhood cancer remains a top priority for HHOW. Because of research, 80% of those kids can be cured. However, even one child who loses his/her battle is far too many,” says Brian Smith, Chief Operating Officer, Hyundai Motor America. “For 20 years, Hyundai and its dealers have dedicated their mission to saving lives and creating hope. We want children to know that Hyundai is on their side.”
