Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!! Fiona and Daniel will be driving a 2005 Ford Focus that was given to us from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville... We'll be running events most months to help us get to our $10,000 goal of funds for the Cancer Council.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. We've set ourselves a goal of raising $10,000, just above the average each team will need to raise to achieve the 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. We'll be seeing how this small hatchback designed for European cities copes with the Australian outback, and have a whole lot of fun along the way raising as much money as we can for cancer research. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below, or follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/thegoodcar2019/

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.
