Cedar Valley Chase has teams acting unusual for a good cause


A fundraiser for the United Way has people acting a little strange in the Cedar Valley. The fourth annual Cedar Valley Chase kicked off at the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center Saturday. Teams of two raced around the area, completing fourteen unusual challenges.

KWWL caught up with the teams at Byrnes Park in Waterloo for a Pirate Beer-Pong challenge -- although, they were playing with water, not beer.

We asked seasoned competitor Brandon Lien if there anything he wouldn't do in order to win.

"That's a good point you brought up, because I have a new partner this year. I have no fears of anything, I'm ready to do it all. I don't know about my partner though! I'd better cover that with her," he laughed!

That was before he learned they would be going through training drills from the Iowa Army National Guard and holding cockroaches at the Imaginarium.

The Cedar Valley Chase wrapped up at Spicoli's in Waterloo. The winners receive a cash prize, a trophy, and bragging rights with their friends. All of the proceeds benefit the Cedar Valley United Way.
