The Bozzelli Race for the Future (originally titled Madeline's Race for the Future) honors Libert and Madeline Bozzelli, local humanitarians who dedicated their lives to giving back to the Cuyahoga Falls, Akron, and Summit County communities. The well-known, well-loved couple raised over $200 million for organizations and causes like Akron Children’s Hospital, St. Thomas Hospital, Cuyahoga Falls General Hospital, the Alzheimer’s Association, Arthritis Foundation, Center for the Blind, Ohio Ballet, Akron Civic Theater, Akron Symphony Orchestra, American Diabetes Association, and countless others. To honor Libert and Madeline's legacy, a different charity or organization each year will be selected to receive all race profits.  

This year we are proud to announce all proceeds of the race will benefit Tarry House.

Libert was especially passionate about fighting for mental health and he served on the board of Tarry House. The organization focuses on working with individuals and their personal recovery goals. They provide the best services possible to prepare persons for the greatest amount of independence in the community.
