Fundraiser to help out skydive couple’s family

AN outpouring of support from family, friends and even strangers followed last weekend's fatal plane crash at Caboolture Airfield.

A fundraising touch football tournament will be held on April 6 in Beenleigh to raise money for the children of Logan couple Joseph "Joey" King and Rahi Hohua, who perished in the fiery crash.

The pair, who were recently engaged, left behind five children.

The touch tournament will be held in memory of the couple and to raise funds for their children's future needs.

The competition will be a mixed, social six-aside format, entry is $250 per team.

It is understood some local players will head to Logan to add their support.

Joseph and his beloved Rahi were supposed to have enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime adventure on Saturday.

Rahi had organised a skydiving trip as a present to Joey, but their Cessna 206 crashed shortly after take-off. The cause is still being investigated.

Left to mourn were five young children: Joseph's 12-year-old daughter Nikita and eight-year-old son Tristan, his infant daughter Trinity in Brisbane and Rahi's children Thalia, 7, and Cruz, 5.

They will never see their parents again, but the Beenleigh and greater Logan community is making sure they will not be forgotten.

All five people on board were killed including skydiving instructors Juraj Glesk from the Sunshine Coast and Glenn Norman.
