Kevin Reilly presents check from Hyundai dealers for childhood cancer

Washington Auto Show Chairman Kevin Reilly made a presentation about the importance of curbing childhood cancer at Childrenês National Medical Center recently as part of a Hyundai Hope On Wheels event. Hope on Wheels has been operating since 1998, with its dealers donating more than $87 million in grants.

With September being National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Hyundai and its Washington area dealers presented a $250,000 research grant to INOVA Fairfax Hospital. Reilly, who is president of Fairfax Hyundai, presented the check. The grant will be used to complete a study evaluating the safety and efficacy of using T cells in high-risk patients with acute leukemia or Hodgkinês Lymphoma after bone marrow transplant.

Washington area children with cancer put their handprints on a white Hyundai Sonata during the check presentation.
