Our Story …

Pete and Fab 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, particularly since Pete's father died from throat cancer. 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. Disco dancing forever!

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.

Enjoy the drive and fixing the breakdowns! I'm sure it will bring back memories of the good old days when we couldn't go fishing without first having to; fix, roll start, push, find, extinguish, fill up the water/ oil/ petrol in the Escort!! So you have pedigree when it comes to driving Shitboxes! Good to see you stuck with Ford, they make great Shitboxes :-)
2 years ago
Hi Geoff, thanks heaps for the support. For $200 I could have probably bought 2 escorts back in those days and still had change for a carton or two of XXXX (I know I ended up selling the mighty escort for $80 after our last fishing trip!). So thanks for your 2 escort donation! Without a doubt I owe you a beer (or five) the next time I am in Brissie.

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.

27 million over the past 12 years 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.
