Hyundai Donates $325,000 to Penn State Hershey

In 1998, a few Hyundai dealerships started a local initiative to raise funds supporting pediatric cancer through the Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Since then, more than 800 Hyundai dealerships across the country have come together to form the non-profit organization Hyundai Hope On Wheels, which raises funds is through donations, 5k walks/runs, and merchandise sales.

Overall, the organization has donated a total of more than $45 million to pediatric cancer in those 14 years, and by the end of 2012, the total will be more than $57 million.

As reported by Gant Daily, over $325,000 of that total is going to the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital in honor National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In addition, Hyundai is also donating $10,000 to go toward electronic purchases to go in the teen activity areas.

“The staff at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and Hyundai Hope on Wheels share a common goal – the improvement in the lives of children battling cancer and an end goal of a cure,” Dr. Sinisa Dovat, one of the grant recipients, said to Gant Daily. “We are honored to have the support of Hyundai to help achieve these goals.”
