Our Story …

Despite being told we are crazy  for doing this We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville... 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 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. 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.

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.

Our first kinda idea to use a spare Hilux. Turns out it's only running on 3 cylinders so have put on Gumtree. Hopefully we can use the funds to buy a Lamborghini.

Hey mate though you might like to take the Aston but then realised the boots not big enough to carry the grog 😂😂. Great cause and good luck cheers 🍻

Ha Thanks, we have had a meeting and we have worked out a way to weld some racks on to the roof of the Aston Martin so grog storage shouldn't be a problem. Anyway thanks for the offer we will happily take the Aston as long as we don't find something better like a Hyundai Excel. Thanks mate for the donation much appreciated.

Our fundraising efforts are going so well and support of our cause has been overwhelming locally and with donations from as far away as Germany!

I'm worried James might get bored now that we have reached our target so I've decided to surprise James and double our fundraising target to $12000 just to keep him motivated while we plan upcoming fundraising events :)

Hey Stuart thanks so much for your kind donation it's very much appreciated. We are pretty confident the Golden Sauna will make the distance although the gearbox is a bit how you going we reckon that is should make the 4000k journey. Our rally has so far raised a little over 1.8 million with a target of 2 million so we are getting real close. Thanks again mate much appreciated.

Mate thanks so much for the donation it's going to be very odd being away when you are back in Hobart unless of course you have another tripped planned. What about a weekend in Townsville to see if we make it ? Thanks mate much appreciated one of the great things about this as a fundraiser is the guy who started it lost both his parents to cancer in the same year. He has a lot of say in where the funds go ie there isn't a truckload of money sent to cancer council to distribute where they want. He is very passionate and due to Shitbox they have had some pretty major break throughs from their funding.

Thanks Dean much appreciated and I'm sure we will have an awesome time. More than that though I'm really pleased with what we have raised so far over $17,000.00 towards cancer research. James freeman that started this rally ten years ago lost both his parents to cancer and he has a big say on where the money gets allocated which is great and they have had some pretty big achievements from shitbox funding. Over 20 million in the last ten years. Yep its all a bot of fun but also for a great cause we are stoked that after three years of trying we are a part of this rally. Cheers J

Cant bloody wait to go and I know we will have a blast but also immensely proud we have earned nearly 4 times the amount we were required to raise to get on the rally. The guy that started these rallies lost both his parents to cancer and has a big say on where the money is allocated and over the last 10 years there has been some great success in the money raised from Shitbox Rallies. Currently the biggest fundraiser for cancer council in Australia so it's a very cool thing to be a part of. Thanks again J

Hi Dan Sorry for the late reply on this mate I was actually on the rally and got the email. We had an absolute blast and met some fantastic people along the way. We will definitely do another one and would recommend it to anyone who is slightly interested in raising some money and seeing some very remote parts of Australia. Overall our rally made 2.3 million dollars and we managed to raise nearly $19,000 which we were very happy with given our total to attend the event was only $5000. Thanks again mate muchappreciated Cheers James

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.
