Hope on Wheels

Did you know that your favorite carmaker has it's own huge non-profit organization, it's called Hyundai Hope on Wheels and you should know that they are working to help kids fight cancer.

I for one am always a huge fan of hearing about people who have the means to help, do it, and since I am a childhood cancer survivor this hits home! Here, Read a little bit about the history,
"Since 1998, Hyundai and its dealers have been committed to supporting the fight against childhood cancer. What began in 1998 as a local initiative supported by New England-area Hyundai dealers to raise funds for the Jimmy Fund at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has evolved into Hyundai Hope on Wheels, an independent 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that is now supported nationwide by Hyundai’s 800+ dealers and Hyundai Motor America. Since its inception, Hyundai Hope on Wheels has donated more than $23 million to children’s hospitals across the country to help kids fight cancer. Every time a new Hyundai vehicle is sold in the U.S., a donation is made to Hope on Wheels.

The Hope on Wheels Tour is the united effort of Hyundai dealers across the country to raise awareness about childhood cancer and celebrate the lives of the courageous children battling the disease. In 2010, the Hope on Wheels Tour traveled to 44 children’s hospitals across the country and donated more than $2 million to support further training and research for doctors involved in childhood cancer research. Hyundai Hope on Wheels designates the medical professionals supported by these donations as Hyundai Scholars."

Hooray for Hyundai! Visit the site and visit our site. Let us know what's going on and what cars you're interested.

I always love reading a feel good story.
