Don and I are really pleased to announce that we are taking part in the 2019 Spring Shitbox Rally!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville, from the 19th to the 25th October 2019.
The Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead 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 as you can see below with the 2019 Spring rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.
We are taking part in this rally in honour of our late mother Nettie, who died of liver cancer in 1996, and for all those who have battled or are still battling cancer.
Fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give will be greatly appreciated. Cancer research is a global thing so please don’t be dissuaded from contributing because the funds are going to the Australian Cancer Council. We believe that globally we will all benefit from any advancements made by the Australian research.
Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below as we plan to periodically post videos of how we are progressing with our preparation and fundraising.
From the NakiBros team, thank you.
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.
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:
