Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we are taking part in Shitbox Rally this Spring. It’s a special one, being the 10th year anniversary rally.

We are just one of many teams driving cars worth no more than $1000 from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville. The rally is not a race – it’s a fun, colourful, unpredictable adventure with participants travelling at their own pace and the goal being just to ‘get there’. Vehicles often break down but with a bit of duct tape, some cable ties and fingers crossed most get to the finish. The cars cannot be 4WD or AWD vehicles. Just classic bangers. With air conditioning if you’re lucky.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia. As a team, we are asked to raise a minimum of $5,000 to make a difference. We are planning to raise much more, however as this is a cause close to our hearts. We have many friends and family members who have been affected by cancer, with some sadly losing their fight. We are committed to reducing cancer in Australia through vital research. 

We are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.

Follow our journey over the next eight to nine months through this page and at our Team Facebook page. We’ll be sourcing a Banger (Shitbox), fundraising, decorating our Banger with Bangers and conceiving costumes for our journey across Australia (or is that up?) plus more.

Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

Here's what I'm doing …

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, this year for the 10th year anniversary rally, over a 7 day across Australia endeavour to raise money for cancer research.

The rally is not a race – it’s a fun, colourful, unpredictable adventure with participants travelling at their own pace in smaller groups. Vehicles often break down but “we never leave anyone behind” and each night is spent camping beneath the stars and celebrating the day’s achievements. It all adds up to an incredible opportunity to see Australia’s vast and beautiful countryside and make lifelong friends, many brought together after experiencing cancer themselves or seeing cancer impact family and friends.

Since it’s inception the rally has been the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally.

Carol, Neil, It looks like we haven't thanked you for your donation to our fund raising drive. Firstly - sorry. And second, thank you! We're really pumped about raising funds to end cancer in Australia. And that begins with important research via the Cancer Council. We want to thank you for helping push us up through the guts of Australia. We'll spray a 'Weiner' on our Banger on behalf of you and will send you a shot or a video of where your sausage sits on our Shitbox. Thanks again. Oz & Matt Team Bangers & Cash

Gavin, I think a donation of $50 came from you today for our epic drive through Australia for Cancer Research. It's tough to see on the WeGive dashboard as your name comes up as Anonymous Anonymous. Perfect! Thank you ever so much for your help. We really appreciate it and will endeavour to get our shitbox over to you asap so you can spray your Weiner on our Shitbox. Team Bangers & Cash

Ita, WOW. Thank you so much for supporting our journey across Australia. This is a hugely important cause for both of us. We're delighted to be able to give back and we just want to thank you for backing us and sending money Cancer Councils way via our rally drive. You will of course be able to spray your 'Top Dog' on our Banger very soon. We'll come to you and you can choose where it sits and who you might want to call out as far as a tribute. Thank you. Oz & Matt

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

Shitbox Rally is a dedicated fundraising event for cancer research with funds going to Cancer Council.

Cancer Council is one of the largest non-government funders of cancer research in Australia. We conduct and fund research studies across all cancers and all stages of the cancer journey.

Thanks to the community funds raised such as Shitbox Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.

Almost $15 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:

  • A research study to develop a vaccine that protects against lymphoma cancers.
  • A research trial to standardise international guidelines on melanoma removal.
  • A research grant to revolutionise the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
