Our Story …

Hi all.

This is Team Mountain Mungos (Frenchy & Wazza's) Fundraising Page - for the 2019 Spring Shitbox Rally. The goal of this rally is to raise funds for the Cancer Council.

We are really excited to be taking part in the Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring event. In October 2019, all the teams involved will be driving their shitboxes (2WD only - worth less than $1000) from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community led 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. The 2019 Spring rally target is aimed at $2,000,000 plus

OUR TEAM GOAL IS TO RAISE $10,000

These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. Both of our families have been affected by cancer.

* Frenchy's brother-in-law, Iain, died from brain cancer in 2016. He was diagnosed in February of that year & passed away in June. He was only 60.

* Wazza has a close family member who has neuroendocrine cancer.

So.... we will be working hard to raise as many $$$ as we can for the Cancer Council.

Our fundraising has reached 'Shitbox Rally' qualification status - which is great. We reckon we'll come close to reaching our 'revised target' of $10,000 in the 'Mountain Mungos ... We Give' account before we head off to start the rally from Melbourne in October.

So....a 'HUGE' thanks for everyone's support of our fundraising efforts so far.

But wait .... there's more:....... Bunnings Katoomba & Woolworths Leura Sausage Sizzles..., Meat Tray & Vege/Fruit Box Raffles at a location to be confirmed soon....& Frenchy is planning a future 'Canvas For Cancer' Photographic Exhibition - from some of his 'Wildlife Pics'....and...

!!!! STOP PRESS !!!!!

We've also started harassing some local & not so local business's for donations for our upcoming 'MEGA RAFFLE' - which we'll be drawing on 31 August. A huge thanks so far to:

~ R & N Auto Electrical Katoomba - A Kenwood Bluetooth Car Stereo (Cheers Noddy)

~ Scott Noon - Scott works at Leura Cellas - he's got us a fab 'Furphy's Esky' & some smacking good wine ... (hope it lasts for the raffle ;)

~ Davis Distributions - (Gulf Western Oil) who have donated us a 'Gulf Western' bar table & stools set.

~ Penrite Oil - some car oil & a couple of nifty 'Polo Shirts'

~ Advance Auto Care Katoomba (Wazza of course) - a Car Service & Safety Check.

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 $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.
