There are over 500,000 infants, children, and adults in the united states with severe-to-profound hearing loss. Hearing impairment is now the #1 birth defect among children born in America.

The Gift of Hearing Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation dedicated to increasing access to and awareness of cochlear implant (CI) surgery. The Foundation also keeps abreast of and support areas of research as well as legislation that can impact both the cost and awareness factors.

Jacob's Ride Deaf by age 10, Jacob received a cochlear implant allowing him to be fully functional in the hearing world. Riding across the country stopping at all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums, Jacob hopes to raise $1 million dollars for others who could benefit from a cochlear implant but cannot afford one.


GOHF is thrilled to be one of the beneficiaries of Jacob's Ride, and are happy to support him in his historic journey!
