July 2, 2024

Local San Diego Hyundai dealers donated a 2024 Hyundai Palisade to the Emilio Nares Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping families with children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The vehicle will be used for the foundation’s “Ride With Emilio” program, which provides free transportation for underserved children and their caregivers to and from hospital appointments. The donation complements Hyundai’s longstanding support of the pediatric cancer community through Hyundai Hope On Wheels, a 501©(3) nonprofit organization supported by Hyundai Motor America and its 835 U.S. dealers, which has donated to the renowned Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego for pediatric cancer research.

“On behalf of San Diego Hyundai dealers, we are honored to support the Emilio Nares Foundation with a brand new 2024 Hyundai Palisade to aid in the transportation of children receiving treatment for cancer and other illnesses,” said Chris George, general manager of El Cajon Hyundai and chairman of the San Diego Hyundai Dealer Advertising Association. “With Hyundai’s nonprofit, Hyundai Hope On Wheels, Hyundai recognizes the importance of supporting the whole child and family while they are receiving care during a challenging time.”
