While a great deal of the annual awards show decided to cancel this year amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, many have opted to instead move the entire operation online. Hyundai Hope on Wheels held their annual “Celebration of Hope Awards” with an innovative pivot that took place online on Saturday, September 19, 2020. The annual event, traditionally held in Washington, D.C., presented the “Celebration of Hope Awards” in honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and brought together the pediatric cancer community to help raise awareness and spread hope. This year’s virtual show was streamed live on www.HyundaiHopesOnWheels.org and social media and included speakers from Hyundai Motor America, Hyundai dealers, Members of Congress, child cancer survivors, and doctor-research grant winners.

The event was hosted by Dr. Jennifer Caudle, a board-certified family medicine physician, and on-air health expert. Special guest appearances included Kevin Hart, Cedric the Entertainer, Mario Lopez, Kym Whitley, Trevor Stines, Phillipa Soo, Eddie George, Faithe C. Herman, Jamie Chung, Amanda Salas, and WWE’s Stefanie McMahon, Kevin Owens, and Sasha Banks. With musical performances by Lisa Dawn Miller, Aubrey Peeples, and Rachel Platten. Going virtual allowed Hyundai Hope on Wheels to provide greater depth and breadth with their awards experience by uniting thousands of families, medical communities, and supporters across the nation to honor and celebrate those that continue to work to end childhood cancer which was free to the public.

As part of its efforts during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September, HHOW has awarded 26 new research grants totaling $6.8 million to researchers at children’s hospitals nationwide in their relentless pursuit of life-saving treatments. Since 1998, Hyundai Hope On Wheels has donated more than $172 million to pediatric cancer research.
