The Moments that Matter Most

So much of our time is spent in our cars. Driving to work, to the store, or even the dinner, but for far too many children, their family car rides are going to and from the hospital for treatment. This is why we decided to give a few families a ride to their treatment hospital, giving them time to talk and enjoy the company of family. We invite you to see what they shared.

Since 1998, Hyundai Hope On Wheels has made it our mission to help find a cure for childhood cancer and support the families in the fight. This year, we ask that you join us by making a donation Hyundai Hope On Wheels. This ensures we can continue to fund lifesaving research.

In the fight against childhood cancer every handprint tells a story. Give your hand to hope by donating today.

How Hope Works

Through no fault of their own, cancer strikes at a time when kids just want to be kids. They have dreams, goals and so much to contribute.

Hyundai and its U.S. dealers created Hyundai Hope On Wheels in 1998. From the sale of every new vehicle, a donation is made to fight cancer. To date, more than $160 million and over 800 research grants has gone to support research at Children’s Hospitals across the nation.


Meet Our Ambassadors

Meet Carter and Elizabeth, our 2018-2019 National Youth Ambassadors. Every two years, Hope On Wheels selects two brave pediatric cancer survivors to represent the program as National Youth Ambassadors. Carter and Elizabeth will join Hope On Wheels in our mission to fight childhood cancer and will travel around the US visiting children’s hospitals and attending events to tell their stories of courage and hope.
