Our Story …

We're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!! This year, along with a couple of hundred other lunatics, we're driving The Rust Bucket (our 1998 Toyota Camry) all the way from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville. What could possibly go wrong?

Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year - having raised almost $18 Million!

Whether you choose to DONATE NOW or SHOW ME THE MONEY-BOX (see video), your support is appreciated!

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.

Hey James- perhaps a better outcome may come from me temporarily selling you our very reliable Prado for $50 for the treck. Rosemary would likely go for that ideas as well ;) good luck guys. Cheers-Ole & Kathy

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.
