St. Louis, MO, September 16, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and St. Charles Hyundai in St. Louis and the Hope on Wheels Program have teamed up to raise funding and awareness for childhood cancer.
The Hyundai Hope on Wheels Program and St. Charles Hyundai in St. Louis are working to raise awareness for childhood cancer all September during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Hyundai dealers and the Hyundai Hope on Wheels Program have been working together the past thirteen years to raise awareness for childhood cancer.
The Hyundai Hope on Wheels Program is excited to announce that a record breaking $7.1 million has been raised through Hope Grants for 2011. The money will be used to fund 71 different projects that research child cancer as well as supporting Children’s Oncology Group organizations throughout the nation. The grants will be given throughout the month of September.
The program will also make a road trip across America for the “Hyundai Drive 4 Hope” tour. A Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle will drive across the country from San Francisco to New York City, stopping at 15 different locations along the way to meet with courageous children battling to beat cancer. The tour will go through the end of September.
On Labor Day, the Hyundai Hope on Wheels Program held their 5k Race & Walk where 941 runners and walkers took to the street to support the program. The event raised $50,000.
Hyundai and St. Charles Hyundai are committed to continuing to raise funds for childhood cancer research. They will not rest until a cure is found. Funds raised in St. Louis benefit the St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Over the past 13 years, Hyundai has donated more than $43 million.
