Our Story …

We are really 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 as you can see with the 2019 Spring rally target set at $2,000,000 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 to Team 'Lady Drivers". 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.

Carina and I are well on the way to clearing $3000 of the $10000 we wish to raise. Box Ping Pong Lotto has been a fantastic way for us to kick off our fundraising. We will be hosting a night in March 2019 at the Jetty Road Brewery to hopefully blow the roof our goal. The night will include food and drink to be bought at the venue with an auction of goods and services with the funds received from the auction to go towards our target. There will be more details to come out in the new year as we move forward.

If there is anyone who has a service or goods they would like to donate to the auction, Carina and I would be excited to advertise this on the night of the auction. I will be setting up some little advertising stalls for those people who donate time, goods or services for auction. The Rye bike shop is the first of the businesses to jump on board. We hope to make this a really enjoyable night and the more people the merrier and the more we have to auction the more fun you will have putting that paddle in the air to bid and win the auction. If you have never bid on an auction ......I can tell you once you get going.....it can be addictive....

Thanks to those people who have already provided support to Carina and I and thanks in advance for those of you who would like to jump aboard..Cheers Yvette and Carina

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.
