Hitting a Home Run for Hearing!

Each year 12,000 babies in the US are born with hearing loss. A “bionic ear” or cochlear implant (CI) would allow many to join the hearing world. Jacob Landis, a CI recipient, is riding to all 30 baseball stadiums to raise money for those who could benefit from a CI but cannot afford one.

Route

Jacob’s ride began on April 3rd in Annapolis, MD where he cycled the first leg of his journey to attend a Nationals baseball game at National Park in Washington, D.C. This was Jacob’s first stadium stop on his coast-to-coast, 11.000 mile bike ride. On September 21st just 180 miles from attending his final game in Marlins Park in Miami, Jacob was hit by a semi-truck. Now fully healed, Jacob will be finishing the final 180 miles of his ride May 28-31, 2014. Click here for more details about Jacob’s final ride.
