Olmstead was diagnosed with germ cell cancer at 16 months old. The club put together the fundraiser to help raise money for her treatment.

“Giada is the strongest little warrior I think I've ever seen,” said Annette Rowback of the Brotherhood of Justice. “She has stayed positive throughout the whole thing. She's happy-go-lucky, even through the chemo.”

The day featured softball, paintball, raffles, and a dunk tank. Olmstead will have surgery after completing chemo. She is expected to make a full recovery.
