Riley Hospital for Children hosts annual Indy 500 party

Sports

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indianapolis Motor Speedway came to Riley Hospital for Children Tuesday night.

IndyCar drivers made a pit stop at the hospital for its annual Indy 500 party. Patients had the chance to interact with the drivers, and even race them with remote-controlled cars.

All of the fun was a way to give drivers a break from the stress at the track and also give the kids and their families some much-needed medicine.

The hospital said drivers who attend the annual Indy 500 party usually do pretty well on race day, including last season when Will Power won the race.

Check out the videos above to see more of the fun from Tuesday’s event!
