Hello Fans, Friends and Family

Friday, September 3rd:  This morning it is raining.  It has been raining since about 2:00AM.  We are moving our location to an RV campground about 5 miles away.  We will spend the day at Nakatosh Campground in Natchitoches, LA.  Nakatosh is how Natchitoches is actually pronounced.  We will use our time here to rest, relax, do laundry, take showers and BBQ some hamburgers.  I have now been cycling for 23 weeks, raising money and awareness in the fight against Leukemia and Lymphoma.  This week I have cycled 588 miles, giving me a 23 week total of 8,381 miles of cycling in my goal to cycle at least 10,000 miles around the perimeter of the United States.  I have now raised about $2,100 in my goal to raise at least $10,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Donations may be made by visiting http://www.gsf.lls.llsevent.org/JACOBSONEXPRESS.  During the month of September, you can have your donation count twice as much. A friend and fellow cyclist, Larry Stern, is matching funds for donations made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  This is only the 3rd day of his offer and I have already seen a great response.  A copy of his email is posted at the end of this blog.  I will re-post this email each Friday during  the month of September.  Until next time . . .Saving Lives One Mile at a Time . . .

Hello everyone,

I’ve been following Wes’ blog from the day he started. I am constantly impressed and in awe of his adventure and with his entertaining way of sharing it with us. It is especially meaningful that, through this adventure, he is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. His goal is $1 per mile and he is estimating that he will ride 10,000 miles for this cause. Without any publicity budget, he is relying on his pedal power and the kindness of those who meet him on the road or follow along on his blog to help him meet this goal.

I have been trying to think of a way that I could give greater support to Wes and his admirable cause and, at the same time, encourage more of his followers to do the same. If each of us, as regular followers of his blog, makes a small contribution – $25 to $50 – it would go a long way toward helping Wes reach his goal of $10,000.

With this idea in mind, I have decided to contribute up to $1000 by matching dollar-for-dollar every contribution made during the month of September. A $50 contribution from each of you added to my $1000 contribution would raise $2000. If more of us also agreed to match other contributions, in any maximum amount, then this fundraising drive could really succeed and Wes’ amazing effort will be rewarded.

Please take a moment to think about what you can do to support Wes and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Please let him know by our matching contributions that his effort is appreciated and encouraged.

As Wes likes to say: “Until next time . . . Saving Lives One Mile at a Time”
