WASHINGTON -- The trek is lasting 175 days and it is covering 11,000 miles, with stops at each Major League ballpark.

Jacob Landis' 30th and final stop will be on Tuesday at Marlins Park.

For the 24-year-old, pedaling through Miami's retractable-roof building will draw to a close Jacob's Ride, dubbed as "Hitting a home run for hearing."

Deaf by age 10, Landis embarked on his trip to every MLB building to raise awareness about the benefits of a cochlear implant. The implant has allowed him to hear again, and he is spreading awareness to others.

Jacob's Ride started on April 3 in his hometown of Annapolis, Md. His goal is to raise $1 million for others who could benefit from a cochlear implant, but they may not be able to afford them.

Landis works at Whole Foods in Annapolis.

Before he rides into Marlins Park prior to Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Whole Foods on Biscayne Blvd. in North Miami, is hosting a finale party for Landis from 2-5 p.m. ET.

Landis is scheduled to arrive at Marlins Park at 5:30 p.m. ET, completing his journey.

After testing his legs on the bike, Landis will loosen up his arm and throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
