Hot rodding’s “marathon man” Dave Schaub is at it again. The San Francisco bay area rodder and long time Goodguys member has embarked on his second fund raising mission in the last 3 years – a mission to drive his Brizio-built ’32 Ford roadster through all 49 Continental United States in just 7 days! He’s asking the entire rodding community to get behind his fund raising drive and donate a penny per mile (or more if you feel like it) to give the proceeds to the Ronald McDonald house. His goal for this year’s amazing trip is to raise $150,000. So far he’s raised $42,915.00.
Dave took off from Maine, Saturday morning September 10th and looks to arrive in Hyder, Alaska this weekend. Why would a hot rodder like Dave put himself through something like this? It’s a logical question. “I’m creating an opportunity for people to get involved in helping others,” he said. “It’s my way of getting people with similar interests to step up and support something they can connect with and be proud they did. Besides it’s just a few weeks out of my life to help make a difference”.
Pretty remarkable we’d say. You can help out Dave and the kids at Ronald McDonald House by visiting Dave’s website www.49in7.com. You can donate with the click of your mouse but you can also follow Dave’s journey live as it unfolds as well as read up on his daily blog. It’s truly a remarkable feat by a remarkable Goodguy. We’re all pulling for ya Dave!
That website once again – www.49in7.com. Help Dave make a difference!
