We, (Jack and Ben) 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 we aim to raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2019 Spring rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. With your help we can achieve the most out of this event to help the Cancer Council cure and help the people that are suffering or have suffered this terrible disease. 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.
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.
This EL falcon is the car we will be doing the Rally in. Last week it hit a kangaroo so its looking a little more shitboxy with the mix match panels. It has been dads car for some years now and he has recently upgrade so dad has been kind enough to donate it. This means less money out lay for Jack and I and more can be put towards raising funds.
Once we raise our goal amount SBR gives $500 towards the purchase of the car but as the car has been donated is $500 will go straight towards our funds for the cancer council.
I would like to welcome aboard Brett Youlden from The Driving Force, He had been kind enough to help us through our journey.
