Goal for Jacob’s Ride to raise $1 million for hearing-impaired children; Landis will throw out ceremonial first pitch
Annapolis, Md., native Jacob Landis will throw out a ceremonial first pitch Tuesday night at Progressive Field as part of his Jacob’s Ride fundraiser for cochlear implants.
Jacob’s goal is to raise $1 million for hearing-impaired children.
Deaf by age 10, Jacob received a cochlear implant, allowing him to hear. He hopes to raise $1 million for children who could benefit from a cochlear implant but cannot afford one.
Landis will ride his bicycle to all 30 Major League Baseball parks as part of Jacob’s Ride, which will encompass over 10,000 miles. Jacob’s Ride kicked off on April 3 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., and will end Sept. 24 at Marlins Park in Miami.
