Our Story …

“get on the BUS with us” 

Team “get on the BUS with us” is a team participating in a national “Box Rallies” fundraising event to raise money for the Cancer Council and we need your support. 

Box Rally events have raised over 15 million dollars for Cancer Research Projects and are the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council. 

The event invites teams to purchase a $1000 vehicle, create a community theme around it, then survive a marathon cross-country outback drive. Winners are the team that most embrace the spirit of the event and raise the most funds. 

The 2019 Spring rally takes us 3,614km over 7 days from Melbourne to Townsville via Birdsville and we want your good name to come with us. 

Our new team theme is the SCHOOL BUS and we are inviting everyone to join us by participating in our fundraising events. Participating Schools that fund raise can also record Bus Chant Videos and will have their Special Dedication printed on the sides of the bus.

The front and the doors are for the Rally and Cancer Council logos, with the back for our personal dedications and team sponsors logos. That leaves the roof for everyone else that makes a straight out donation (not a purchase) on the Team Page. So if you want your name as a supporter or the name of someone who has been touched by Cancer on the bus, make a donation and leave details in the comments and you can

“get on the BUS with us”

The old mini bus will be highly decorated and optimistically totally covered in hundreds of names and dedications. Your participation, at any level, is crucial to our success.

These funds go to the Cancer Council and 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.

Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below. You can also follow what we are up to on our facebook page. Watch out for the creativity of the participating school kids with their Bus Chants that we will be broadcasting from the BUS at our events and on the Rally.

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.

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.
