When Melissa Hill's son, Jackson, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, sarcoma, she soon realized there had been little research into the disease since the 80's. The Hill's have found a way to keep the memory of Jackson alive with a ride in the gorge to raise awareness and money for research into this deadly cancer.
Jackson's Ride the Gorge is a one day bicycle tour of the Columbia Gorge on Saturday, July 21, 2012. This 100 mile, 50 mile or 25 mile ride route will raise money for the Jackson Hill Wellness Center at the Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel in Portland.
