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.

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.
Our stickers have arrived so we've decorated the car! Keep an eye out around Bendigo and Melbourne for a Mondrian Ford Focus.
