PROVIDENCE, R.I., July 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Hope On Wheels® will present the Hasbro Children's Hospital of Providence with a $50,000 Hyundai Impact Award. Hasbro Children's Hospital is one of 25 recipients of this year's award, which is given to pediatric oncology departments at select children's hospitals nationwide. Hasbro Children's Hospital will use the funds to support the work of pediatric cancer research and programs. The $50,000 Hyundai Impact Award will be officially presented to Hasbro Children's Hospital Thursday, July 27th at 10:00 a.m.

In 2017, Hope On Wheels will award $15 million toward pediatric cancer research and programs. This brings the organization's donation total to $130 million since Hyundai joined the fight against pediatric cancer in 1998. With this latest grant, Hasbro Children's Hospital has received more than $425,000 from Hope On Wheels.

"Throughout the country, talented doctors are working tirelessly to help kids fight cancer by conducting research or providing bedside care," said Scott Fink, chairman, Hyundai Hope On Wheels Board of Directors. "Our goal at Hope On Wheels is to provide these doctors with the grant funds they need to perform their lifesaving work. Superheroes come in all forms, but for children and families battling cancer – superheroes wear lab coats."

The $50,000 Hyundai Impact Award will be officially presented to the Hasbro Children's Hospital Thursday, July 27th at 10:00 a.m. During the event, Providence area children battling cancer will participate in the program's signature Handprint Ceremony, in which they'll dip their hands in paint and place their handprints on a white 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. Their colorful handprints on the official Hope Vehicle represent their individual and collective journeys, hopes and dreams.

Doctors and researchers that receive a grant from Hope On Wheels are named Hyundai Scholars and are presented with a special lab coat. This year, Hope On Wheels will further recognize its Hyundai Scholars for their incredible efforts on behalf of children battling cancer through a campaign called "Superheroes Wear Lab Coats." The video series will showcase their lifesaving work.
