Riding to all MD AA basegames for those needing a cochlear implant
The MD AA Minor League Ride was another great chance to pass the word on to others about the Ride, and the reason to help others receive the cochlear implant. Each long day on the bike ended at a game full of support.

Getting to meet and talk at schools is one of Jacob's favorite pastimes when not riding the bike! Sharing the story of the Ride and spreading awareness is just another purpose of Jacob's Ride.
The Gift of Hearing.  Help others receive it.
Jacob received his cochlear implant when he was 10. Each year 12,000 children are born in the U.S. with hearing loss. Make your donation today to help others receive the gift of hearing.

 Our Mission is Expanding 

Since inception we have focused on raising awareness and funds for cochlear implants.  Now we are about to take the next step. 

For the past five years, Jacob's Ride has provided funding for several individuals getting their first cochlear implant. Now we are directly accepting applications, participating in the screening and selection process.

We are teamed with other cochlear implant charities to help make surgeries possible for those without any health insurance.  Together with these other charities, we hope to make surgery possible for those who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

To inquire about assistance with cochlear implant surgery, send an email to us at: info@jacobsride.org.

 

Why ride?

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.

Jacob has ridden his bike over 20,000 miles and the resulting donations have financed over a dozen cochlear implants!

Remember that your donations give this cause meaning. In addition to riding to and attending the 37 baseball games, Jacob has spoken at over 120 public forums addressing more than 10,000 people - each time spreading the word about cochlear implants. Your donations matter! 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 reason Jacob Rides! Still riding and planning even more!
