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 plus.
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.
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.

Welcome to our We Give site.

We are the Lost Nutz - both figuratively and for those that have.

In this case we know someone who has Lost Nuts to cancer. So we are doing this to try and find a way to prevent this happening to anyone in the future.

We have also had many on our families who have suffered or died as result of having some form of cancer. Mother, Father in law, father in law, Grandparents and the list goes on and on.

So formally

"For Wayne who lost one to cancer and everyone else who is left feeling “incomplete or disfigured” due to this disease, as well as those who have passed"

Please assist us in this somewhat crazy endeavor but for a good cause.

Regards AW and JS - The Lost Nutz

I've had personal experience with a stage 4 diagnosis a few years back and are still here to tell the tale. The support from the Cancer Council and the health professionals at Sir Charles Gairdner was fantastic and I am indebted to them and all the staff involved. Every little bit helps and I am happy to give something back. Hope you hay a hoot of a time in the Rally and succeed in your goal.

Hi Lost Nutz Supporters,

We finally have a SHITBOX.

and it is a SHITBOX (well not all that bad really)

A very well looked after (not) 1996 EL Ford Falcon with .... Not much else really

It has 4 wheels, 4 doors, 5 seats and an engine. It drives reasonably well.

It DOES NOT have - AC, a smooth ride, vibrationless travel, Cruise control or any other mod con.

But it did cost only $500 (inc 6 months rego at a cost of $475) Thanks Vidar.

I have been working on checking and changing the essentials - and ONLY the essentials.

We will remain under the $1000 budget easily I think as I have only changed the wipers blades, exhaust hangers and diff oil so far.

Next will be the cooling system - hose changes and cooling system clean and flush and Oil / oil filter change

The rest is only if I can get it done - shocks and running gear checks. I know ALL the running gear rubbers are RS but time and the budget will probably stop those being changed.

Anyway

We are on the way

Andrew (one of the Lost Nutz)

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 $20 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.
