Meet The Sunday Mail Transurban Bridge to Brisbane’s reigning fundraising champions.
Team Transurban is a charity support juggernaut. Transurban has supported Ronald McDonald House Charity SEQ for more than a decade, donating $2 million to give families of seriously ill children a home away from home. They raised over $350,000 last year to be named the highest fundraiser.
This year more than 250 members of the team will join forces for the October 15 event to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities SEQ.
Transurban Senior Manager Public Affairs Ruth Moody said Team Transurban was excited to Beat the Bridge in 2023 and raise money for the families of seriously ill children at Ronald McDonald House Charities SEQ.
“We love being part of such an iconic community event in Brisbane that showcases the best of our city while raising much needed funds for the charities across SEQ.”
Transurban Asset Planning Manager Mitchell Stewart (pictured) placed 40th in his age category in last years’ Bridge to Brisbane and is already preparing for 2023. “My colleagues and I have already started our training regime to prepare for our favourite race of the year, over the 1.6km Gateway Bridge. This year I’m aiming to Beat the bridge and my 10km time from 2022.”
The event is a hive of energy and entertainment, with Stewart commenting “I find the energy from participants and music across the course gives you that extra push to keep going and I can’t wait for race day.”
Transurban is responsible for ensuring the Gateway bridge is ready for race day with up to 30,000 runners, walkers and wheelies expected to hit the pavement in October.
Transurban Queensland Group Executive Sue Johnson added “We are excited to dust off our joggers and once again partner with The Sunday Mail on this unique celebration of Brisbane’s active lifestyle.”
