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.
The Mountain Mungos are currently just over the $9,400 mark in fundraising...but.............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.
So....a 'HUGE' thanks for everyone's support of our fundraising efforts so far.....especially the local businesses for their donations for our upcoming 'MEGA RAFFLE' - which we'll be drawing on 31 August.
Our next major fundraising event is Frenchy Mungos: 'Canvas4Cancer Photographic Exhibition'.Saturday 31 August, 2pm - 5.30 pm at the Katoomba RSL
On display, & available for sale, will be 22 large format (60x90cm) canvas photographic prints. Australian Native Birds will be the dominant subject (of course), but other natural-world & a couple of 'random' images will be featured as well. They'll be selling for $180 ea. , & $100 from every sale will head straight to the Cancer Council (tax deductible receipts) for muchly needed cancer research.

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.
