Hyundai and its nonprofit organization Hyundai Hope On Wheels will be presenting the Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC with a $50,000 Hyundai Impact award on Tuesday, July 18th. The funds presented will be used to support the continued work of pediatric cancer research and new programs. 

Hope on Wheels has made it a goal to award to award $15 million toward pediatric cancer research and programs this year alone. This brings the organization's donation total to $130 million since Hyundai joined the fight against pediatric cancer in 1998. With this new grant, the Levine Cancer Institute will have received more than $525,000 from the organization. 

To commemorate the award, children battling cancer will participate in the program's signature Handprint Ceremony where they will dip their hands in paint and place their handprints on a white 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. The colorful handprints represent their individual and collective journey, hopes, and dreams. 

We applaud Hyundai and Hope on Wheels for recognizing the doctors, researchers, and children as true heroes and giving hope to those who face the toughest battle.
