Harness Race Rally

Harness Race Rally

Though much has changed since the first Harness Race Rally in 1962, one thing has remained the same—the ticket price.

Since 1962, the Friends of Akron Children's Hospital, a dedicated fundraising group, has sold raffle tickets for $1 each to raise money for patient care programs at Akron Children's. The winners are drawn during a harness race at Northfield Park.

To date, more than $3 million has been raised through the Harness Race Rally ticket sales.

The 2013 Harness Race Rally was held Aug. 2, 2013 at Northfield Park. Proceeds from this year's Rally will benefit the School and Community Oncology and Outreach Program (S.C.O.O.P.), which raises awareness about childhood cancer in schools and communities.

This year's winners are:

2013 Chrysler 200:  Richard Greene
Diamond ring:  Chuck Penzenik
Diamond necklace:  Melissa Martin
Ride on AirBear®:  Marsha Bollinger
Sheraton Suites package:  James D'flauto
Jukebox:  Donna Wakeland
Apple ® iPad:  Joan Dye
