Our Story …

We're taking part in the 2019 Shitbox Spring Rally!! In October this year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes (each worth less than $1000) from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville... The Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fund-raiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. Part of the participation requirement is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000. The 2019 Spring rally target is set at $2 million plus. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fund-raising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

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.

Only 241 days to go. Haven't found the right car yet but we've bought a pack of rally-type stickers that will add that professional touch. Note the all important 'Tow' stickers that indicate where to attach a rope. Expect we'll get some use out of those two.

Keep thinking of you and how we had time together in the NPA and of Fred and how this research might help him or others to follow. It's been truly an amazing time with more to come, and stories to be told. Many thanks from the Shitboxers xxx

G'day Bill. This was very generous of you. As you would have seen , we made our goal of Bottom-to-the Top and the Corolla ran like a dream, except for the last 6km of corrugations that knocked something loose underneath. We are regrouping at Bamaga, just south of The Tip, and I've managed to track down a jack and support stands. So I'll have a good look underneath to see what we're dealing with. Leaving for home early next week. Thanks once again, see you in Sydney. Cheers, The Shitboxers.

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 $20 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.
