Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!!

This year teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Townsville, via the Birdsville Track.

The Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. The organisation has so far raised over $15million dollars to support the Cancer Council and its vital research projects. Part of the participation in the event, 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. The Shitbox Rally is founded on the theory that by getting out and doing something unique, positive and proactive, it brings an element of fun and excitement to the formidable task of raising money to cure this heartbreaking disease.

Since the passing of my father Peter in 2014 to cancer and the loss of Pats Aunty Rose over a decade ago, we have wanted to get involved in some capacity to assist fund raising for the Cancer Council. This year we have been accepted into the Shitbox Rally Spring and we will be fundrasing throughout the year to ultimately make a contribution to funding research and hopefully raise awareness for both great organisations.

All funds raised will go to the Cancer Council research projects 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. Alternatively if you could share this page with any of your network it would also be much appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and thanks for your suppport.

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.

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.
