Every year in Georgia, more than 50 children die from cancer.

Some businesses are raising money to try to lower that number.

Carl Gregory Hyundai in Albany is joining other Hyundai dealerships around the nation in their Hope On Wheels program.

For each car sold Hyundai will donate $14 to a fund that will provide grants to more than 70 hospitals nationwide including two in Georgia.

Jerry McClellan of Carl Gregory Hyundai said, "call it civic responsibility, call it 'hey we care about the kids'. Because anybody that's had a family member or has met a child that has cancer or any childhood illness I mean your heart really goes out to that child."

This is the second year for Hyundai's Hope on Wheels program.

Even if you don't need a new car, you can still donate to the cause.
