Angus and James are pleased to be taking part in 2019 Spring Shitbox Rally!
In October 2019, 250 teams will drive their cars (worth no more than $1,000) from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville - a total of 3,614kms!
Upon reaching Townsville, the cars will then be auctioned with proceeds going to the Cancer Council.
We will be completing the journey in our mighty 1997 Lexus ES300, which we bought in Pymble for $1,000!
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia, and is now in its 10th year. To qualify for the rally, all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000. We hope to exceed this amount, and raise as much as we can for this amazing cause.
The fundraising is the hard part, so any contribution you can make to this cause is greatly appreciated. All funds raised via this page are captured in our team's running balance, and go directly to the Cancer Council.
Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and our Facebook page!
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:
