Our focus:

the gift of hearing

Giving the gift of hearing. Jacob’s Ride is driven by the passion for helping others hear. Jacob has ridden more than 15,000 miles since 2013 because he knows the difference the cochlear implant has made in his life and does not want to see anyone who needs one to go without.

Through our efforts and the generosity of our supporters, Jacob’s Ride has provided financial assistance for over one dozen cochlear implant recipients in the past five years. Today, we have the ability to implant eight individuals annually with a budget of only $70,000. Be part of someone’s miracle today and choose to give the gift of hearing.

Jacob’s Ride has no employees and is a volunteer-only organization.


Our Mission

Jacob’s Ride provides financial support to help a select number of patients, that either have no health insurance coverage or otherwise cannot afford the cost of surgery, receive cochlear implants.
