Full Circle
May 22 - - In April 2002, Jeff Gordon met a 5-year-old boy who had been diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa -- a rare eye disease that would eventually rob the child of his vision. Colton Meyer and his family visited with Gordon in his race hauler at California Speedway. Colton's mother, Laura, had emailed me about the meeting and the story was featured on the website. I've stayed in touch with Colton and his family over the years, and it's an incredible honor to give a commencement address at his high school graduation on May 27. The first fundraising effort I spearheaded was for the Foundation Fighting Blindness in 2003. It was Colton's inspiration that led to that effort, and, ultimately, led me to the concept of online charity fundraising when Jackson Panzarello's fight against terminal cancer motivated me to make a difference in 2011.

    Fight On Against Pediatric Cancer
    In 2011, Jackson Panzarello forever altered the course of my life. Jackson's battle against cancer sparked my efforts to give more children a fighting chance against the disease. He passed away in 2012, but his legacy continues through the impact we've made for research and treatment. I have many teammates who open their hearts and wallets every time I have a pediatric cancer fundraising event. Whether you've donated $5, $500, or $5,000, your continued support means to the world to me. My fundraising efforts are directly tied to the power of teamwork. It is truly, as the inscription at Hendrick Motorsports reads, "the fuel that allows common people to produce uncommon results." Please consider a donation and join our team in the fight against pediatric cancer.
