The Haley Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children was awarded a $100,000 Hyundai Impact Award from the Hyundai Hope on Wheels program.
The funds will be used to support pediatric clinical trials conducted by Don Eslin, MD. Orlando Health Arnold Palmer was one of 21 recipients of this year’s Impact Award, which is given to pediatric oncology departments at select children’s hospitals nationwide.
This year celebrates Hyundai’s 20th year in the fight funding pediatric cancer research through the Hope on Wheels program.

With this latest grant, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer has received over $600,000 from Hyundai Motor America. During the check presentation ceremony, kids battling cancer participated in the program’s signature Handprint Ceremony, in which they dipped their hands in paint and place their handprints on a white 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. Their colorful handprints on the official Hope Vehicle represent their individual and collective journeys, hopes and dreams.
