Our Story …

Brett (Dougie) and I are pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville. Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount. Brett and I are driving the car which belonged to Brett's grandfather Frank Hegarty who sadly passed at age 78 in 2003 from cancer and we dedicated this challenge in his honour. I myself am a 3 times survivor of cancer with bouts of Hodgkins and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in the past 16 years, kept in check by use of chemo and stem cell transplant with the most recent treatment in late 2017. So my appreciation of the improvement in treatments due to research enabled by funds raised goes without saying, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. 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.

Well ,must admit the old Astra is looking somewhat different thanks to Neal and Jo and the team at Fremantle Accident Repair Centre, as well as Go Graphics. We have nearly reached our $5000 milestone thanks to the generosity of friends and family. Next month we will be searching out some business donations and in may we have our Fuel Up event for all to enjoy.cheers all🚗🚗👍

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.
