People Pelt Johnson County Auditor with Water Balloons for a Cause
JOHNSON COUNTY, Iowa - The Johnson County Auditor's co-workers pelted him with water balloons Friday afternoon to raise money for a good cause.
The money will go toward helping pay for cancer treatment for a five-month-old baby in Missouri. Landon has a rare form of cancer.
A Facebook page called "Take the Plunge for Landon" is asking anyone who wants to take the plunge to take a video of it and challenge someone else.
Johnson County Auditor Travis Weipert says Page County Auditor Melissa Welhausen challenged him. Weipert says he faced about 70 water balloons on Friday and plans to challenge someone else to help Landon.
