Greetings - We are the Pastafarian Pirates from Pirron Yallock. Locally, we are renowned for our infamous abode - The 'Notorious' Blue Church Of The Flying Spaghetti Monster', located on the Princes Highway - turn left for the Twelve Apostles and the shipwreck coast of southern Victoria. 'Tis with great joy we announce that they let us in to take part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!! We'll be trying to drive our shitboxes 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. We have to raise a minimum of $5,000 to be allowed to take off, but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see 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're dedicating this to my dad Ted Walsh, who was taken from us by this horrible disease...The fundraising is the hard part, but that view might change when we start this treacherous journey..especially if we run out of rum...so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below. May his noodly appendages guide us home..
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.
More than $30 million over the past 12 years has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
