5 Minutes with Transurban Queensland Group Executive Sue Johnson
This year Sue Johnson will lead an 80-strong Transurban Queensland team as they run the Bridge to Brisbane alongside Ronald McDonald House Charities South East Queensland team members. As a proud sponsor of the event, Transurban Queensland has been taking part in the Bridge to Brisbane for more than 22 years.
Name: Sue Johnson
This year I’m really excited that Transurban Queensland and Ronald McDonald House Charities SEQ will run together as a team. All funds raised will go to support this wonderful charity that provides a home away from home for more than 5000 families each year. As a team we’re also supporting 11 year old Tidan Wright’s campaign to raise $5000 for Ronald McDonald House by matching his fundraising efforts dollar for dollar. Tidan and his family spent seven months at Ronald McDonald House while his sister was in hospital, so he’s running the Bridge to Brisbane to give back to the charity that helped his family in their time of need. We are so humbled by the strength of Tidan and his family, and couldn’t be happier to get behind such a worthy cause.
A little bit about yourself:
I’m a mother of three kids and the Group Executive at Transurban Queensland. After living interstate for a few years, I’m proud to be back in my home state of Queensland with my family.
Why did you choose The Sunday Mail Bridge to Brisbane?
It is such an iconic event which brings our community together and shows off our beautiful city. While this is my first year taking part in the event, our Transurban team has been participating in the event for over 20 years. I can’t wait to walk with my family, colleagues and our partners at Ronald McDonald House Charities SEQ.
What event are you participating in and who will you be running with?
I’ll be walking the 5km race with my husband and three kids.
Name three things that are key to living a fulfilled life: Spending time with family and friends, being active and always challenging yourself.
Where is your favourite spot to go for a run in Brisbane?
You can’t go past a run or walk along the beautiful Brisbane River.
If you could go for a run with one person (celebrity or not), who would it be and why? Time with my family is so important to me, so my favourite walking/running buddies would have to be my family.
