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.
One down, one to go!
Thanks to all for supporting the Coast-to-Coast 2015 Ride!
As Jacob prepares for the second Ride of 2015--starting August 1st!-- you can continue to support the cause by giving generously so that others may experience the gift of hearing. And get ready to join Jacob on his tour of the Maryland minor league ballparks in Home Run For Hearing II!
Remember that your donations give this cause meaning. Throughout the Coast-to-Coast Ride Jacob remained on schedule and kept smiling through driving rain, rolling hills, and flat tires. He made several stops to spread the word about cochlear implants, and to meet 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!
TWO Rides in 2015!
May 26th-July 19th
"Jacob's Ride - Riding for the Gift of Hearing"

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. Now let's gear up for the next Ride!
"Homerun for Hearing II"
4 Maryland Ball Parks, 287 miles in 5 Days
The second Ride will be a quick, short and fun event, with Jacob riding to all four of the minor league teams in Maryland. Jacob will visit the Bowie Baysox on August 1st, the Frederick Keys on August 2nd, the Aberdeen Ironbirds (Cal Ripken's team) on the 3rd and the Delmarva Shorebirds in Salisbury on August 5th. Come join Jacob at a game--you can also hop on your bike and ride along! Your participation helps Jacob raise awareness about cochlear implants, and makes the ride even more fun!
