INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — For some Jeff Gordon fans, it’s his efforts off the track that are most exciting.

On Thursday, Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health said thank you in its own inspiring way.

Staff at Riley presented Gordon with a video montage, a framed picture collage, and a Jeff Gordon Red Wagon to be used by kids at the hospital.

Gordon responded by doing what he’s always done: giving right back. Gordon presented Riley with a check for $300,000 through the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation.

Gordon has promised to continue his work with pediatric cancer even after his days on the track are done. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
