Separately, Daniel and Tim are two random idiots. Together, they are still idiots, just not random.
They met in 2013 on a week-long, Rotary-sponsored leadership camp and spent the following two years volunteering on the same camp in the kitchen, whipping up three meals a day for the hungry 80-odd participants.
Daniel once bought a cucumber thinking it was a zucchini and Tim once got a carving knife stuck in a pumpkin for over an hour.
In 2016 they teamed up to tackle the Shitbox Rally, successfully driving a beaten up late 90s VS Commodore Ute from Mackay to Hobart. Since, they have seen each other only a handful of times, as that week was enough ‘bonding time’ for a lifetime.
Stupidly, they’ve decided to once again pair up and tackle the 2019 spring Shitbox Rally, from Melbourne to Townsville.They are raising money for the Cancer Council, having both directly and indirectly affected by cancer.
We are hoping to raise $6,000 at the very least and hopefully a lot more. So please, get on board, get behind us blokes and help us make a difference. As a reward you get to watch two big dickheads on the journey of a lifetime.
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:
