Cheerleaders brave the cold for trip to Texas

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- One group of girls braved the cold Sunday afternoon so they could go to Texas.

Cheerleaders from Cedar Falls High School are collecting cans and selling baked goods to help them raise money for a trip to dallas to compete in a cheerleading competition.  The trip is going to cost them $11,000.  So far, they have raised about $3,000.

"It's a great experience and its a challenge for our team.  It gives us something to work really hard for and hopefully achieve great accomplishments as well as having some fun," said cheerleading coach Tami Doyl.

The can drive will continue all week at Metro Can and Bottle Redemption in Cedar Falls.  Wal-Mart is matching funds that the cheerleaders raise.
