How Hope Works

Hyundai and its U.S. dealers created Hyundai Hope On Wheels in 1998. With the sale of every new Hyundai vehicle, a donation is made to fight childhood cancer. To date, $185 million has been donated in support of over 1,000 research grants focused on improving outcomes for children battling cancer.

$185 Million

Meet Our Ambassadors

Meet Alex and Jordyn, our 2020-2021 National Youth Ambassadors. Every two years, Hope On Wheels selects two brave childhood cancer survivors to represent the program as National Youth Ambassadors. Alex and Jordyn 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.

Awarded Hospitals

Hyundai Hope On Wheels awards grants in three categories to researchers at eligible Children’s Oncology Group member institutions. In 2021, we presented more than $13 Million in pediatric cancer research grants to hospitals across the United States.
