CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Jeff Gordon's charitable foundation has committed to donate $1.5 million over three years to help children fight cancer in Africa.
The Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation announced this week it will team up with Partners in Health and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute to develop a comprehensive program in Rwanda. The funding will help with prevention, diagnosis, chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and follow-up care for kids in one of Africa's most densely populated country.
The four-time Cup series champion formed his foundation in 1999 to support children fighting cancer. It also helps fund the Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital in Charlotte.
