LACONIA — More than 20 years ago, Hyundai and a group of New England-area dealers joined the fight against pediatric cancer by launching a local initiative to support the Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The initiative grew to become Hope On Wheels, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to finding a cure for childhood cancer.

In efforts to do its part, Irwin Hyundai has donated a percentage of each Hyundai sale at its Laconia dealership during the month of March. Irwin Hyundai was able to donate $4,522 to Hyundai Hope On Wheels.

Less than 4 percent of federal research funding for cancer is designated for pediatrics. Hyundai Hope On Wheels was established to fill that void, and Irwin Hyundai is helping to raise awareness while donating life-saving research funds and celebrating the lives of children affected by this disease.
