About Jill's Ride for Hope 2013 — A Message from Polly and Rob Naber

We lost our daughter Jill to suicide during her freshman year at LGHS. Jill was a vibrant, talented young girl, just 15 years old. She was distraught when an embarrassing picture of herself was sent electronically and placed on an internet site. Cyber-bullying and other pressures intensified her feelings of despair, and on March 15, 2009, she took her own life. After Jill’s death, a non-profit organization named CASSY, Counseling and Support Services for Youth, was embedded in Los Gatos High School. CASSY quickly became a heavily utilized resource at LGHS, helping students, faculty, and families through pressures and difficulties, all free of charge. In 2012, community donations enabled CASSY to extend its mission by providing additional counseling services at Raymond J. Fisher Middle School.

We, and many others, greatly appreciate the services CASSY provides at LGHS and Fisher. Thank you for supporting CASSY and Jill’s Ride for Hope in memory of our daughter Jillian Bailey Naber.

50 Mile Ride

Start Time: 8:00 AM

Course Description: This is a beautiful ride with a long 7-mile climb up Hwy 9. It continues on Skyline, down Page Mill, and around Stevens Creek. The 50 mile ride is a very challenging course for highly experienced riders only. Please consider riding the 25-mile course if you are not riding regularly, or if you do not have significant experience climbing non-stop for 45-70 minutes to the summit of the Santa Cruz Mountains and descending narrow, steep winding roads. 

Participants who rode last year's 100K distance may recall that there was an aid station at the top of Skyline and another aid station at the top of Mt. Eden. For this year's 50 mile event, there will be just one aid station located at the top of Mt. Eden. Water is also available at the Saratoga Summit Fire Station just north of the right turn onto Skyline from Hwy 9. Cutoff time for the Mt. Eden aid station is 11:30 AM.
