Hyundai has combined one of its biggest sponsorships; its relationship with the Carlton Football Club, and its CSR program, Hyundai Help for Kids, for a very special day of fund-raising at the MCG.

In the final match of the regular season, against Essendon - an absolute thriller that ended in a 90-all draw - Hyundai Help for Kids pledged to donate $1,000 for every Carlton goal to the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation.

This inspiring charity works towards the goal of 100 per cent survival for all children with cancer, and the prevention of their suffering, and is named for Steven Walter, a young man who died at the age of 19 in the year 2000 after an eight-year battle with cancer. In his last days, Steven wrote a powerful letter to everyone he knew, asking them to raise money for research “so that one day no other kid would have to go through what I’ve been through”.

As part of the Hyundai Engine Room pre-game activities, Hyundai also had a replica of Chris Atkinson’s i20 rally car for people to get up close and personal with, as well as a chance to play Real Racing 3 on a giant screen. Real Racing 3 features the SR range of sporty vehicles - which now covers Veloster Turbo, i30 and Accent - and budding racers, young and old, lined up to set the fastest time on this challenging but enjoyable racing sim.

Also taking part in this special day were legendary children’s entertainers The Wiggles, who appeared on the MCG’s big screens to lead a special dance contest and sent along Dorothy the Dinosaur to meet her little fans both at the Engine Room and during half-time.

Thanks to the support of Hyundai Help for Kids, Carlton Football Club, the Hyundai Dealer Association of Victoria and generous donations from the match day fans a total of $31,800 was raised for the Steven Walter Children's Cancer Foundation.
