NEW YORK, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --   Hyundai Motor America President and CEO John Krafcik rang The NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell at the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square on March 26, 2013. The event commemorated the 15 th year in Hyundai's fight against pediatric cancer through its nonprofit foundation, Hyundai Hope On Wheels®.  Mr. Krafcik was accompanied by C.J. George, Hope On Wheels National Youth Ambassador, Hyundai dealers, other Hyundai executives, and representatives from the Hope & Heroes Children's Cancer Fund at Columbia University Medical Center.



"It is an honor for Hyundai and our dealers to mark our 15th year helping kids fight cancer through Hyundai Hope on Wheels at such an important venue as the NASDAQ MarketSite," said John Krafcik, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. "We appreciate the support of NASDAQ in providing this platform to amplify the collective voice of the thousands of families battling pediatric cancer, the leading disease-related cause of death for children in the U.S."

Hyundai Hope On Wheels will officially launch its 2013 program during a special press conference on Thursday, March 28 at the New York International Auto Show. The event will feature Hope On Wheels' first of eighty donations it will award in 2013 to pediatric cancer institutions engaged in life-saving research, totaling more than $14 million.
