Seeing family and friends that have had cancer, some of which have lost their battle reminds us what is truly important. Helping to raise money to prevent people from suffering is an easy choice. It is important to us that we do everything that we can to support our family and friends. But life goes on, so by doing the rally we can raise some funds for an amazing organisation and have a bit of fun along the way.
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 Mended wrecks jalopy arrived safe and sound in Melbourne after 1800 km in 48 hours. Many thanks to Stuart and Wendy for the parking spot over the next two weeks.
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.
