We do it for the kids!

WHO IS VALLEY WITH A HEART?

Valley With A Heart Benefits is an organization located in the Wyoming Valley region of Pennsylvania. We are comprised of a group of people that are very passionate about helping children in our community experience a better quality of life during their battles with critical illness. Our actions are driven by our mission to inspire and encourage community involvement and awareness for the sake of providing monetary and spiritual support to our recipient families.

Unfortunately, and for a number of reasons, caring for a child that is critically ill can become a very expensive process for families. Whether it’s the cost of the medicine they need, co-payments required for hospital and doctors visits, travel expenses , etc.., it can make things very difficult for a family, especially if they are not financially secure. The fact is, they didn’t ask for this, nor were they ever expecting it to happen, but it did, and now they have to endure it. We don’t believe they should have to do it alone. It’s a lot easier to fight a battle when you have a community of people supporting you, and that’s what we are here for.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN…

In 2001, a group of concerned friends got together with an idea to raise funds for then 11 year old cancer patient Elise Harrison of Plymouth Township. Being motorcyclists, we knew of the big hearts that most bikers have, and decided to hold a benefit ride. With the help of Plymouth Township Volunteer Fire Company, Plymouth Township Recreation Park Association, our sponsors, our many volunteers, and entertainment from 40lb Head, Oz, many other area bands and Rock Street Music, we were able to raise over $13,000 for Elise and her Family. Sadly, Elise lost her battle to cancer one year later. Since the event meant so much to Elise, we decided to make this an annual event in her memory. Her heart will continue to beat within our organization forever.
