SHEATOWN — People came together to help some sick children in Luzerne County.

Sunday was the 14th annual Valley with a Heart Benefit Ride and Family Picnic at the Holy Child Grove in Sheatown.

The event kicked off with a motorcycle ride Sunday morning to help benefit the families of sick children.

There was also live music all day, plus games, raffles, and a fireworks display.

“We see so many families that have a child that’s affected with a serious illness and the little bit we can do to help them out just makes their lives easier,” said John Davis, organizer. “That’s why we do what we do, trying to be positive influences and trying to help a lot of sick children.”
