The Famous Jacob’s Ride will be Completed on May 31 in Miami When Florida Marlins Play the Atlanta Braves

Jacob Landis returns to Florida to finish the last 180 miles of his 2013 ride that took him to all 30 Major League Baseball Parks to raise awareness about hearing loss.

Jacob Landis, the creator of Jacob’s Ride, will complete his amazing ride on May 31, 2014, in Marlin’s Park in Miami.

Jacob's Goal Cut Short by Tragedy
The 2013 Ride was cut short at mile 10,666 in Frostproof, Florida, when Jacob was hit and seriously injured by a semi-truck. He was just 180 miles from Marlin’s Park and was not able to ride that last leg. He vowed to return after he recovered in order to ride into Marlin’s Park just as he had planned last year.

Jacob is returning to the ride and there will be a 60-mile loop/rally to form an escort of riders who will join Jacob as he triumphantly returns to Marlin’s Park on wheels! People are also invited to join Jacob at the Marlin’s/Braves game th...
