Pushing the Pedals for Kids

Sweating, spinning and giving back to a sweet cause! That's the mix making up a weekend event in Luzerne County that's supporting  "Valley With A Heart." The nonprofit helps families with sick kids.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey stopped by Back Mountain Revolution in the Shavertown area on Friday to see what to expect at the event this weekend.

The fundraiser will have people hopping on spin bikes and using their pedal power as a way to help the cause.
