This is Team Mountain Mungos (Frenchy & Wazza's) Fundraising Page - for the Cancer Council's 2019 Spring Shitbox Rally.
We are really excited to be taking part in the Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring event.
This October, all the teams involved (approx 250) 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 last (& final) official fundraising event occurred on 31 August (Frenchy Mungos Photo Exhibition). - and from the donations from sales & generous supporters, we've cracked the $13,000 fundraising barrier. "YIPPEE".
So....a 'HUGE' thanks for everyone's support of our fundraising efforts over the last 12 months.....especially the businesses that sponsored our car (Tax Record, E-Smart Solar & Radical Erections Building - Condobolin) and the many other Blue Mts businesses & people that donated prizes for our hugely successful Mega Raffle.
A special shout out to all who have donated directly to this 'We Give' page & who have also helped us at our various fundraising activities.
We are so grateful.
BUT - although we are now concentrating of getting the 1996 Toyota Camry Mungo Machine in ship shape condition (as far as possible) for its & our big Shitbox adventure in October:
WE ARE STILL GRATEFULLY ACCEPTING FURTHER DONATIONS TO THE CAUSE - being 'CANCER COUNCIL RESEARCH FUNDRAISING'.
So, feel free to slip out your credit card & hit the orange 'DONATE NOW' button on this page. Who knows - your support may one day help someone you love & care about.
Cheers & thanks so much.

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.
A huge thanks to donors - with $4,300 in the Cancer Council kitty as at December 10.
Katoomba People - Dec 21 5.30 - 6.30 pm - at the Station Bar near the Railway Steps. Join us for a Xmas Ham / Vege / Fruit Box Raffles. Cheers to John at the Station Bar for his support.
