We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!! In today's world its really easy to get up caught up in your own journey and forget about those who are suffering or have suffered the immense trauma and sadness that is a cancer diagnosis. We have all lost someone to cancer and if there is something we can do to get rid of it then best we give it a crack and our team is determined to do just that in our brand spanking new 1989 Volvo 240.
We will be driving our shitbox from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville, so not exactly the direct way. The Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. All funds donated go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising 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.
So hit the Donate button and help a couple of Frankston boys make a difference. If you make one big enough we will even put your mug (or logo) on the car!
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:
