SALT LAKE CITY — Hyundai Hope On Wheels has awarded Primary Children’s Medical Center with a $250,000 Hyundai Hope Grant to Dr. Anne Kirchhoff for her work to develop a tool looking to improve the long-term care for pediatric oncology patients.

The check was presented during Hope On Wheels’ signature Handprint Ceremony at Primary Children’s Medical Center. At the ceremony, children affected by cancer dipped their hands in colorful paint and placed their handprints on an official Hope On Wheels lab coat presented to Dr. Kirchhoff to commemorate their brave battles with cancer.

In 2013, Hope On Wheels will donate 41 Hyundai Hope Grants totaling $10.25 million to institutions across the country. By year's end, Hope On Wheels will surpass $72 million in donations to pediatric cancer institutions nationwide since its inception in 1998.
