Men skate from Portland to Ashland for cancer

MEDFORD, Ore. — Four Oregon men who set out from Portland on longboards have skated into Ashland to complete a 363-mile fundraising ride.

The four skaters made a pit-stop in Medford Saturday afternoon before completing their four-day skateboarding trek later in the day. They’re riding to raise awareness and money for cancer research.

The Mail-Tribune reports the men skated at least 60 miles every day since leaving Portland Wednesday. They drove a white van that carried food, water, first-aid supplies and spare equipment.

They made stops in Corvallis, Eugene and Roseburg, before finishing in the Rogue Valley.
