Hyundai Hope on Wheels, continued ...

In addition to Dr. Huynh’s recognition, the hospital’s cancer patients will take part in the Hope on Wheels Handprint Ceremony, during which they dip their hands in finger paint and apply their colorful handprints to a white Hyundai Santa Fe. The car, which is covered in children’s handprints from all over the country, is the symbol of Hyundai Hope on Wheels.

“We are inspired every day by the brave children we meet at our Handprint Ceremonies,” says Jared Hardin, dealer principal of Hardin and Garden Grove Hyundai.  “When the kids place their handprints on the car, we are honoring their brave battles against cancer, commemorating their triumphs and sharing their hope for the future with other children and their families across the country.”
 
This is Hyundai Hope on Wheels' 11th year of commitment to  raising money for childhood cancer research efforts. Hyundai and its dealers have donated more than $12.4 million to children’s hospitals nationwide and collected hundreds of handprints from children fighting childhood cancer. More information and the complete list of 30 stops on the 2009 Hyundai Hope on Wheels Tour is available at hyundaihopeonwheels.org.
