Once again, Hyundai is participating in the Hope on Wheels campaign

 

Hope on Wheels Story

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.

The 2010 Tour also hosted Handprint Ceremonies for childhood cancer patients, both past and present, at the 44 children’s hospitals receiving donations. The symbol of the Hope on Wheels Tour is a white Hyundai Santa Fe vehicle covered with colorful handprints representing childhood cancer patients from all over the country. The Handprint Ceremonies celebrate the courage of these patients by capturing their colorful handprints on the white Santa Fe, with attending children placing their own handprints on the car to commemorate their battle with cancer.

Why handprints? Because there’s nothing more personal than a handprint – and the goal of the Hope on Wheels Tour is to share the personal triumphs of each of these children with other childhood cancer patients and their families across the country. Whether it’s completing a round of chemo, celebrating a beautiful new head of hair or receiving a clean bill of health, one childhood cancer patient’s milestone can be another’s symbol of hope.

In 2011, Hyundai and its dealers will continue their commitment to battling childhood cancer with the “Hyundai Gives Hope on Wheels” initiative during the month of September – Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In addition to the $2 million raised through the 2010 Hope on Wheels Tour, Hyundai Motor America and Hyundai dealers donated an additional $6.8 million to children’s hospitals and other non-profit organizations across the country through last year’s September initiative.

Please stop in and help Glenbrook Hyundai make a difference.  You do not need to buy a car.  If you live in Fort Wayne and drive a Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Kia or another make, just swing in and purchase a hand print.  As we all know, when it comes to fighting cancer, every little bit counts.  If you are in the market for a new Hyundai, a portion of every sale goes to the Hope on Wheels program.  Its just another reason we say, Drive Hyundai and Drive Happy!
