Washington Area Hyundai Dealers, Children’s National, Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, and The Washington Auto Show are teaming up to help fight pediatric cancer!
The 2020 Hyundai Hands On Hope Contest featured participants from two area medical centers leading the fight against pediatric cancer: Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and Children’s National. Contestants competed for a brand new 2020 Hyundai Venue over the 50-hour contest period. As in past years, all contestants were required to remain in contact with the car for all 50 hours (except for periodic breaks). But in 2020, the Washington Area Hyundai Dealers made sure this great contest helped support a vital cause: pediatric cancer research.
Six contestants were selected from a pool of employees from Georgetown Lombardi and Children’s National – three contestants formed “Team Georgetown Lombardi” and formed “Team Children’s National.” As part of this contest, the winning contestant was awarded a brand-new 2020 Hyundai Venue. More importantly, Georgetown Lombardi and Children’s National received $100,000 in pediatric cancer research grants, moving us ever closer to a cure for pediatric cancer.The winning contestant’s medical center received a $60,000 pediatric cancer research grant. The runner-up medical center was awarded a $40,000 pediatric cancer research grant.
