The Bridge to Brisbane fun run is heading back to the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridge (Gateway Bridge).

We’re excited to announce Transurban has become naming rights sponsor of The Sunday Mail Transurban Bridge to Brisbane for the next three years.

30,000 participants will have the exclusive opportunity to run over one of the city’s most recognised Bridges for the first time in six years.

We’re excited to be shaking things up with the launch of our inaugural Bridge to Brisbane fundraising appeal to support Ronald McDonald House (RMH) Charities SEQ (RMH).

We’ve been a major supporter of RMH for the past eight years, raising more than $1.27 million for RMH thanks to the ongoing support of our business partners and stakeholders.

This year, Transurban employees, business partners and stakeholders will be participating in Bridge to Brisbane to raise much needed funds for families of seriously ill children.
