Kayak Poker Run first of its kind in Cedar Valley

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

A first of its kind poker run for the Cedar Valley took place Saturday afternoon, with participants riding their kayaks down the Cedar River.

The poker run started at Washington Park in Cedar Falls and finished up downstream at Exchange Park in Waterloo.

The poker run raised money for Magical Mix Kids, a non-profit organization that works to send chronically and terminally ill children and their families from the Cedar Valley on an all expenses paid trip to Disney World.

The group reached their goal of raising $1,000, the amount of money it costs to send one family to Disney World.

They plan on making the event an annual affair.
