The car magnets, with colorful children's handprints, are a visible symbol of support for not only the runners, but for the children the runners hope to help. With a $5.00 donation, a supporter can keep the magnet for their own vehicle, or sign it and have it accompany the runners on their journey.

Hyundai Hope On Wheels™
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, nonprofit organization 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. Key Hyundai is a proud participant with the charity, bringing the Hope On Wheels tour to Connecticut on several occasions.
