Jacob Landis is on a mission: raise money and awareness for cochlear implants. This year, he set out to ride his bike to all 30 major league baseball stadiums before the season ended. Why? Jacob was deaf by age 10. He received a cochlear implant to allow him to be fully functional in the hearing world. His ride is trying to raise $1,000,000 to help get implants for others who need but cannot afford one.
He was almost there. He had ridden to 29 of the stadiums. But on September 23, 2013, Jacob was on a rural Florida road heading to his hotel when, according to a witness, Jacob was struck by the mirror of a semi. The trucker never stopped. Jacob suffered a severe concussion, a broken nose, two small cheekbone fractures and a chipped tooth. A statement released by Jacob said he has no memory of the accident.
