Our History

David Gaudron (a truck driver for Logan City Council) had a 10 year old nephew with special needs, who badly wanted to ride in a big truck. David wrote a letter to ‘Truckin Life’ asking for help to organise something – he had no idea what he wanted to do.

And the rest, as they say, is history. A working committee of David Gaudron, Robin Hunter, Kevin Prescott, John Moran, and Senior Constable Mark Yabsley was formed to organize the first convoy. At that meeting many years ago Convoy for Kids was born and because of these men’s vision, millions of dollars have been raised for children’s charities.

John “The Ferret” Moran O.A.M. is the undisputed face of Convoy for Kids in Australia. He is a Life Member of Convoy for Kids Sydney, patron of nine other convoys around the country (including Brisbane’s), and is the event’s National Ambassador. 29 years later John is still on the convoy circuit.

In 2009, following discussions with some of the present committee and John Moran, the Brisbane event was re-ignited. As a result, Brisbane Convoy Kids returned with a bang in 2010 after a ten-year hiatus. The last eleven convoys have seen over $1 Million being donated to benefit children in South East Queensland.

This year an expected 600 plus trucks along with 100 utes and bikes, will travel the 65 kilometre distance from Forest Lake on Brisbane’s south side, along the Gateway Motorway to finish on the north side at the Redcliffe Showgrounds for the 2019 Brisbane Convoy for Kids on Saturday 2nd November.

We could never have imagined how much the community would embrace the event the way that they have. Our goal is to provide commitments to both sponsors and our selected beneficiaries alike through our yearly convoy.
