Hyundai Hope On Wheels (HHOW) is working with Hyundai dealerships around the country to award 18 hospitals grants for pediatric cancer research. The Hyundai Impact Grants, each of which total $50,000, is aimed at reducing childhood cancer. Money may be used for patient assistance, teen centers and play rooms, family support, educational initiative, and efforts to improve care.
Hyundai recognizes the devastating effects of childhood cancer, not only on those diagnosed with the disease, but also for parents, friends, and family. According to Yahoo Finance, HHOW will award $13 million in pediatric cancer grants in this year alone. Originally founded in 1998, the program has funded a total of $115 million in research to the Children’s Oncology Group and member institutions.
“Our mission at Hyundai Hope On Wheels is clear: end childhood cancer,” said Scott Stark, Chairman for HHOW. “By funding transformational research through our Impact Grants and celebrating the lives of the brave young cancer fighters at our handprint ceremonies, we move closer to our dream of a day without cancer.”
The Impact Grant is given during a handprint ceremony in July and August, which means many hospitals will be receiving Hyundai’s support this month. To commemorate these events, Hyundai is having the kids dip their hands in paint and press them against a white Hyundai Tucson. This not only serves as a reminder, but it also serves as a metaphor for the ongoing relationship between the automaker and cancer research.
The Hyundai Elantra is back and better than ever. This compact model comes with an especially quiet ride, smart design, and the latest in infotainment technology. Looking at the stylish and practical sedan, car buyers are realizing the potential of the Elantra now more than ever. It’s the perfect time to buy this great new model.
The 2017 Elantra design is one of its great new features, both inside and out. The contoured body is engaging and sleek, with aerodynamic curves that will grab attention on the highway. Plus, with distinct lighting, a wide hexagonal grille, and a range of bright color tones to choose from, the new Elantra doesn’t get any better.
The interior design is just as impressive as the exterior. “The Elantra’s cabin wholly embraces the art of simplicity without feeling overly boring or stale,” said the auto writers at KBB.com. “The steering wheel offers plenty of flexibility for a variety of body types, while the driver’s seat won us over with its 8-way power adjustment, ample thigh support and, unlike the Civic or Cruze, memory settings and 2-way lumbar support.”
The Hyundai Elantra is a compact model, but you wouldn’t guess from the interior. The passenger cabin is surprisingly roomy, with 14.4 cubic feet of cargo room—among the largest in its segment—as well as seating for five. You won’t want to leave the driver’s seat of this new model. Aside from the design, discover what else makes the Elantra so enjoyable by test driving this model for yourself.
