Members of the Kappa Delta sorority see-sawed for about 48 hours this weekend. The see-saw-athon was held at the Market Street on 50th Street.

80 percent of the proceeds will remain in West Texas, benefiting the Children's Advocacy Center of the South Plains. The balance will go to Prevent Child Abuse America.

"We've done it for the past 13 years," Katie Cook, member of Kappa Delta said. "We have only been doing it for the past two days and we have already raised $4,000, just by standing out here in front of Market Street. So we have seen a lot of success..

Thousands of Kappa Deltas across the country participate in the fund-raiser to benefit local affiliates and chapters of Prevent Child Abuse America.
