Hundreds turn up in the rain
DESPITE living in Brisbane, when Graeme Badrick heard the Geiger family needed support he knew he had to be there to help out.
"They've put in so much of their time into helping other people so we're all just returning the favour."
Local sporting groups organised a charity fun day Saturday to support Lynda Geiger who was diagnosed with terminal cancer two months ago.
And despite the rain, hundreds turned up to show their support.
Organiser Wally Koy wasn't surprised so many people were there.
"Lynda is a well-known and loved member of the community," he said.
"And the whole Geiger family have done so much. It's the people way of saying thank you."
An army of 40 volunteers helped entertain and feed 200 estimated supporters who came from all over to support the family.
Mr Koy said the proceeds from the day were still being counted but they "well exceeded" their expectations.
