About Hope On Wheels ( The Hope On Wheels Scholar Grant program began in 2006 and each year visits children’s hospitals across the U.S. to donate funds and raise awareness for childhood cancer research. All stops during this program include a Hope On Wheels “Handprint Ceremony,” the program’s signature event which celebrates the lives of the brave children battling the disease by capturing their colorful handprints on a white Hyundai Tucson, the official 2012 program vehicle.

Additionally, in 2011, Hope On Wheels made its single largest research grant award in the amount of $10 million to CHOC Children’s Hospital of Orange County. The funds are being used for a project focused on pediatric genomics research. The new research center was named, the Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children’s.

Hyundai and its dealers continue their commitment to battling childhood cancer in 2012 and officially launched the Hope On Wheels Scholar program at the New York International Auto Show on April 5 and launched the Hyundai Hope Grant program on September 1.
