The inspiration for the event comes from the sad passing in late 2009 of Jannita Dunn, elder sister of Rugby League great Gorden Tallis, and also Deb McColm, the wife of former long time Broncos kicking coach Graham McColm.   Both ladies had strong ties to the Brisbane Broncos and Brisbane Softball Association and for Graham and Gorden, it was only fitting to create an event in remembrance of them and to broaden the focus on others impacted by cancer.
