And today, the Foundation adds Riley Hospital for Children located in Indianapolis, IN.
Jeff Gordon, driver of the #24 DuPont Chevrolet explains the choice of Riley Hospital for Children. "The state of Indiana has been important to me and to my career as a NASCAR driver. I wanted to give back to this area by supporting one of the premier children's hospitals in the nation. Brooke and I chose Riley because of their dedication to care for the most seriously ill children in Indiana. And, because of the state-of-art treatment facility and cutting edge research programs that are part of Riley," stated Gordon.
