You may be shocked to discover that only 4% of all National Cancer Institute research funding is designated for childhood cancer. This is why Hyundai is commited to funding pediatric cancer research in an effort to fill this void. Our mission is to raise awareness for childhood cancer, donate life-saving research funds and celebrate the lives of children affected by this disease.

In 2016, we are proud to have funded $115 million in pediatric cancer research since inception and we will continue to do so until the day when no child ever has to hear the words, “You have cancer.” Together, we can end childhood cancer!
