Jacob's Ride was established in 2013 to raise funds and public awareness about the benefits of cochlear implants for the deaf. Jacob Landis, a cochlear implant recipient, has dedicated himself to helping others receive the gift of hearing.
Thanks to all for supporting the Coast-to-Coast 2015 Ride and Home Run for Hearing II!
Remember that your donations give this cause meaning. Throughout the Coast-to-Coast Ride and Home Run for Hearing II, Jacob remained on schedule and also made several stops to spread the word about cochlear implants, meeting with people who are using them or hope to be using them someday. Now Jacob would like nothing more than to see donations pouring in--let's make it happen! Every dollar you give goes toward the gift of hearing for someone who cannot hear. Give what you can, as much as you can, but GIVE!
The 2015 Rides
May 26th-July 19th
"Jacob's Ride - Riding for the Gift of Hearing"
Coast to Coast, 3,800 miles in 54 days
Mission accomplished! Well done, Jacob, and thanks to all who helped make this a success: the chase van drivers, those who hosted Jacob for the night, those who bought tickets to the games, and all who supported in any way. You kept Jacob and the Ride going strong!
"Homerun for Hearing II"
4 Maryland Ball Parks, 287 miles in 5 Days
The second Ride was a quick, short and fun event, with Jacob riding to all four of the minor league teams in Maryland. It was not only fun but a special privilege to meet the supporters of the Ride, especially those who are CI users or hope to be. The Ride is all about YOU!
