IOWA CITY (KWWL) - The Iota Chi Chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha International Fraternity at the University of Iowa hosted a fundraiser to raise money for the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA).

The fraternity hosted a teeter-totter-a-thon this weekend, aiming to raises $7,500 to help further the mission of the ABTA and to support those living with a brain tumor.

The event is a decades-old tradition in which members of Lambda Chi Alpha take shifts to keep a giant teeter-totter in motion for 48 consecutive hours.

Throughout the event, the Lambda Chi Alpha house hosts performances by local musicians, serves food and has a number of giveaways donated from Iowa City businesses.
