Jacob Landis of Annapolis, Md., spoke to hearing-impaired Delaware students at the Lewes School May 16. Landis recently completed a bicycle ride to all 30 Major League Baseball parks in America to raise money and awareness for hearing-impaired children.
Landis slowly lost his hearing as a child, and at age 10, he had cochlear Implant surgery. He attended middle school and high school as a regular student.
With just 180 miles left on his nearly 11,000-mile ride, on his way to Marlins Park, Landis was struck by a semi truck. Now fully healed, Landis will complete his Jacob's Ride with a county sheriff escort from Frostproof, Fla., to Miami's Marlins Park.
