We are stoked to be taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!! From October 19th, we'll be driving our beloved Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes 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. We've both had very close friends and family battle different forms of cancer and some have not won the battle. We are setting a goal of raising more than $7500 for the Cancer Council and help the Spring 2019 Shitbox Rally raise well beyond $2.2 million. To hear where this money is going makes us extremely proud to be doing our bit 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.
Cheers from Cam (Inches) and Steve (The Doctor)
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:
