Thousands of lives have been touched this week after a 6 year old boy passed away on Family Day.

Support has been pouring in on the bridge near Bayside Point and online through a GoFundMe page.

That page was looking to raise $15,000 to cover funeral expenses and they exceeded that total in just one day.

Airdrie's Operation RACK (Random Acts Of Kindness) is also putting forward a silent auction which is running until February 26th.

Details of the auction are found through their official Facebook Page.

Dozens of Airdronians will gather again at the bridge for "Airdrie Embraces" a show of solidarity for the family.
