Hyundai Hope on Wheels gives $250,000 grant to Children's Hospital


Hyundai Hope on Wheels awarded a $250,000 research grant to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC on Thursday.

The grant will fund childhood cancer research led by J. Anthony Graves, PhD, MD.

Thursday’s check presentation and ceremony commemorated Pittsburgh-area children affected by cancer.  The children’s handprints were placed on a white Hyundai Tucson.

The event was part of a campaign to honor National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. 

The campaign will generate $10.5 million to support 45 pediatric cancer research projects at Children’s Oncology Group member institutions across the country. 

In its 17th year in the fight, Hope on Wheels will surpass $100 million in funding pediatric cancer research.
