As part of “Hyundai Gives Hope on Wheels,” Camp Sunshine is the recipient of a $100,000 “Hope Grant.”

During a ceremony scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, local Hyundai dealers and representatives from Hyundai Motor America will present the grant to Camp Sunshine to support its mission to improve the lives of children living with life-threatening illnesses, such as cancer. Child cancer patients and their families, as well as doctors, staff and volunteers from Camp Sunshine, are expected to be in attendance as well.

Hyundai Hope on Wheels is working to raise awareness throughout September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Hyundai is airing a national television commercial addressing childhood cancer, offering informational materials at its dealerships and donating a total of $6.8 million to hospitals and nonprofit organizations across the country.

Camp Sunshine, in Casco, offers children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to take a break from the extraordinary demands placed upon them on a daily basis. Families can enjoy the camp, which is staffed almost entirely by volunteers, free of charge.

Childhood cancer remains the leading cause of death in this country of children between birth and 14 years of age.
