Hyundai Hope On Wheels, a nonprofit supported by Hyundai Motor America and its 820-plus U.S. dealers, Thursday announced plans to make $13 million in research grants available this year to eligible Children’s Oncology Group member institutions pursuing pediatric research aimed at improving treatments and saving lives.

This year’s grants bring the organization’s donation total to $185 million since 1998.

“With already scarce resources being used to support the ongoing COVID-19 response, children’s hospitals nationwide are in greater need of critical pediatric cancer research funds,” said Scott Fink, chairman of the Hyundai Hope On Wheels Board of Directors and CEO of Hyundai of New Port Richey.

“After 23 years and $185 million in the fight to end childhood cancer, our mission is more important than ever,” he said. “Children battling cancer deserve the opportunity to lead long, healthy lives and the doctors and researchers working tirelessly to treat them need our support.”

The application process for Hyundai Hope On Wheels research grants is currently open now through June 9.
