Every year, Jeff Gordon's trip to race at Indianapolis includes a trip to Riley Hospital for Children and a bowling tournament to raise money for sick kids.

The Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation recently established the Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation Pediatric Cancer Research Fund at Riley Hospital for Children. The Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation created a $1 million endowment to fund research conducted in partnership between Riley Hospital and the Wells Center for Pediatric Research at the Indiana University School of Medicine. The remaining $500,000 will address immediate research needs at Riley Hospital.

The endowment fund will provide vital resources for Riley Hospital/Indiana University School of Medicine researchers seeking to impact treatments, therapies and cures. Since its first gift in 2001, The Jeff Gordon Foundation has given Riley more than $1.58 million.

The Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation and Riley Hospital for Children have a longstanding relationship built on mutual respect and honor. We are privileged to work with an amazing organization and will continue to support the efforts of Riley Hospital for Children in years to come.
