Local News

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — The YMCA of the Rock River Valley used pedal power to benefit local kids and families with its inaugural Spin-A-Thon Monday morning.

Riders took to the saddle shifts as a DJ kept them motivated.

YMCA CEO Brent Pentenburg also took part in the event, riding for the entire 7 hours.

Pentenburg says the money raised will help build a stronger community.

“We help every person reach their full, God-given potential,” he said. “We give them a place to belong. So, we do this so that more people have access to programs and services.”

Pentenburg’s ride alone helped raise $1,000.
