Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital (Cleveland, OH), Children’s National Hospital (Washington, D.C.), and Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) are the first three to receive $200,000 each to assist COVID-19 testing for children with pediatric cancer

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., March 24, 2020 – #hyundai Hope On Wheels® (HHOW), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported by #hyundai Motor America and its U.S. dealers, announces a donation of $2 million for COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Centers in partnership with children’s hospitals throughout the U.S. The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has created a particular threat to children with cancer, many of whom have compromised immune systems. COVID-19 drive-thru testing provides a safe and trusted way for children who present risk factors to receive the care they need. As a leading funder of pediatric cancer research, #hyundai Hope On Wheels has supported the health and well-being of children with cancer since 1998.

“Hyundai is a company committed to improving the well-being of society and the health of children,” says Jose Munoz, President and CEO, #hyundai Motor North America. “In the last few weeks, our society has been challenged with a major pandemic that has had significant consequences to life, safety and well-being. Children who are diagnosed with cancer are particularly at high risk. Through our #hyundai Hope On Wheels program, we are committed to being a strong partner on behalf of children’s health and assisting during this time.”

The following children’s hospitals are the first three of ten to receive a $200,000 donation to support their Drive-Thru Testing Centers (additional hospitals to be announced):

  • CHOC Children’s (Orange, CA)
  • UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital (Cleveland, OH)
  • Children's National Hospital (Washington, D.C.)

“This is an unusual time in our nation as we combat the ravages of COVID-19 coronavirus,” says Scott Fink, HHOW Board Chair and #hyundai dealer-owner, #hyundai of New Port Richey (New Port Richey, FL) and #hyundai of Wesley Chapel (Wesley Chapel, FL). “Hyundai dealers across America unite with #hyundai to serve humanity, as we come together in this time of national crisis. Through our involvement with #hyundai Hope On Wheels, we know that children who are fighting cancer have weakened immune systems and are at a high risk for COVID-19. Together, we have directed additional resources to the various hospitals, who are arranging COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Centers at their facilities across the U.S.”
