This month is Childhood Cancer Awareness month for Hyundai Hope on Wheels. Hyundai Hope on Wheels is the united effort of Hyundai America and its more than 800 dealers across the U.S. to help children fight cancer. Since its inception in 1998, this organization has donated more than $57 million to pediatric cancer research institutions nationwide.
Every September Hyundai dealerships in Minnesota donate funds to support children’s cancer research. This year local dealerships raised $250,000 that was later donated to the U of M Amplatz Center, which specializes in pediatric medicine. This donation was presented to the Center during a ceremony which also celebrated the lives of children by capturing their colorful handprints, which will later be applied to a actual vehicle for display.
Morrie’s was proud to be able to help raise awareness about childhood cancer and celebrate the lives of these brave children.
