Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Spring 2019 SHITBOX RALLY!! This year, all the teams are driving their Shitboxes from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville...

We are reaching out to you all to support TEAM SPUDDY, I am sure you have either been affected by losing a family member or someone close to you from cancer like we have.

Over the past number of years together we have lost a Mother, Mother in Law, Father in Law and numerous close friends.

But it wasn't until we lost someone our own age, someone we had grown up with, that it really hit home.

This to acknowledge the life of Gary (Spuddy) Cullen who passed away from cancer on the 1st September 2016, aged 51. 

Gary Saultry and Damian Prescott wanted to find some way of raising funds for cancer after Gary’s death, therefore enrolling in the Shitbox Rally Event in 2016.

After many applications TEAM SPUDDY was accepted in July 2018 to participate in the Spring 2019 SHITBOX RALLY, Melbourne to Townsville.

We thank you in advance for your support and donations to TEAM SPUDDY. All support provided will not be just for one person, it will be in memory of all our loved ones that have suffered from this disease.

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.

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.
