Hi everyone,

For tonight’s race please make your contribution before 18:00 (9 am PST) today! Some of you have already made a donation and for that I say a big THANKS.. you’re truly making a difference in the fight against childhood cancer. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about please read yesterday’s post or go to this link: http://jacobschaub.com/2014/09/tomorrow-my-training-starts (Big red donate button on the right side). Remember to notify me so I know how far to bike today.

It’s going to be crazy.


Dear friends and close ones.. and my family.. and cousins and uncles and aunts..

Tomorrow it’s time to put me to the test + help me raise some money in the fight against childhood cancer. Tomorrow I will start my training .. I haven’t yet got my Rynkeby bike but I got myself an old used racer (for now).. okay here is the deal I will bike 30 kilometers and then I will return home.. or (here comes the fun part.. for you).. for every $15 donation that I’ll receive today and tomorrow I will add an extra half a kilometer to tomorrows ride.. and on top of that my dear mom has promised to match each donation up to a maximum of $300 in total. So be with me in the fight against cancer and donate money, or just watch me suffer as I go the extra half kilometer for every click on that big red donate button (www.jacobschaub.com)..

I’m looking forward to tomorrows ride..


Ps: I will start biking 17:00 (8 am PST) so remember to respond to this post no later than 18:00 (9 am PST) if you want me to go the extra mile.. :)

Dear friends, family and close ones!

As you might already know I have joined the biking team Rynkeby where I will bike and raise money to children with cancer. I will train hard and do lots of fundraising, and next year I will bike all the way from Sweden, Malmö to France, Paris.. I need your support to raise the initial funds needed for me to be allowed to join the team. I need myself to raise $4000 to buy the Rynkeby bike and all the equipment, clothes, etc. Please make a donation to my son’s PayPal account on www.jacobschaub.com (the big red button to the right).

Also if your employer or another company you know of is interested in sponsoring the Rynkeby team (100% goes to the Swedish Childhood Cancer association barncancerfonden) there is a possibility to get the company name on our shirts, banners etc with high visibility during the year we race on the roads and participate in all the public fundraising events. I will have more information about the company sponsoring soon but already now please talk to whomever you need to talk to or at least start the thought process and be ready when I reach out to you..

Some of you have already made a donation and for that I say THANK YOU together we will beat this ugly thing called cancer so one day children won’t have to suffer and die and the world will be a better place for all of us.

Stay tuned and remember it’s still September the international childhood cancer awareness month and you have a chance to help.

Today marks the start of the international childhood cancer month.. and I got the best news: Team Rynkeby called me letting me know I made it into the 2015 biking team!! they only accepted 10% of all applicants and I was one of the lucky ones.. Now starts a crazy year with biking practices, workouts and some serious fundraising.. and next year I will bike from Sweden to France (how crazy isn’t that) in the fight against childhood cancer!!

Being part of something bigger than yourself is a fantastic feeling!! I will need your support, 1. For me to be allowed to participate I need myself to raise 4000$ to buy the racer and equipment etc.. If you want to help me reach this initial goal please go to Jacobs web page www.jacobschaub.com and press the giant red donate button to make a PayPal donation, make sure to write your name and “Rynkeby”. Also if your employer has a matching program make sure to register your donation with them to double the amount. 2. This is the important part, to be able to make a difference in the fight against childhood cancer we in the Rynkeby team need to find companies that is willing to sponsor us to reach the larger goal which is to raise millions to the Swedish childhood cancer association (barncancerfonden). Companies will get their logo on the teams racing clothes and lots of visibility during the year we bike and participate in various events. The exact amounts to qualify getting your company logo onto our shirts (and pants) I don’t know yet but reach out to me and we will figure out those details. If you think your employer is interested to know more or if you know of another company that could be interested please let me know and we can get the ball rolling.
