So here we are...Nick and Pete are psyched to share that we are taking part in the 2019 Spring Shitbox Rally!!!
We’ll drive, push, and tow a car worth less than a new pair of RM Williams boots, all the way from Melbourne to Townsville, via the iconic Birdsville track.
With barely enough know-how to find North let alone change a tyre - and 3,700 kilometres ahead of us - we’re hoping our shitbox holds together. Even if there’s a prang, you know our playlist will be bangers from start to finish.
But make no mistake, this isn’t just about having a good time. We’ll be fundraising for the Cancer Council until our rally in October - the Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia.
We need to raise a minimum of $5,000 - but for a cause like this, any bit helps. Get around us, and we’ll do our best to deliver good content throughout the journey and a few good fundraising events at a town near you (Melbourne, Adelaide and Canberra).
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.
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 $20 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
