Hope On Wheels Ceremony

September 9th, 2019 by

If you’ve ever noticed one of our Hyundai cars riding through town covered in colorful handprints, you’ve already glimpsed an important symbol meant to inspire hope for families dealing with an unthinkable struggle. These handprints were made by children who are currently battling pediatric cancer, and though the Hyundai Hope On Wheels initiative, our dealership is raising funds to support them along their journey.


When and Where

On Thursday, September 24, we will hold this year’s Hope On Wheels Ceremony at Children’s Hospital.

The Handprint Ceremony

Just like snowflakes, every handprint is unique. When we paint our vehicles with the handprints of each child, we’re capturing something personal and distinctive, like a signature. The children’s handprints grace Hyundai cars that will travel from coast to coast, spreading an inspirational message everywhere they go. The children that participate leave their mark for others to see, and each handprint represents someone’s hope for a brighter future.

Hope On Wheels

Hyundai Hope On Wheels is a non-profit organization devoted to supporting children as they fight pediatric cancer. Over 830 automotive dealers across the U.S. partner with Hyundai each year to raise funds for cancer research, and since it was formed in 1998, the organization has presented a total of $160 million in grants in pursuit of treatments and cures.

You Can Help

Thorough research into treatment and medication has allowed many children to overcome tremendous challenges in their life. The funds raised by Hope On Wheels goes to further this crucial research, and you can help by making a donation to Hyundai Hope On Wheels today.
