Our Story …

Heeeeeyyyyy youuuu guyyyys (Goonies reference for you millennials)

We are relieved and excited that we can announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring!! Its been a bit if a wait but going to be so worth it.

This year, we and all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville, in a car worth less than $1,000. No mean feat but worth it for the adventure. Not sure how Grandpa J is going to go with that many late nights but Danno's enthusiasm is catching.

Our Team The Loose Nuts is now part of the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia which is now in its 10th year.Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000. We have set our goals higher than that but i've always like to under promise and over deliver.

For myself (Jay) its a personal tribute to my mother who lost her battle with Melanoma 15 years ago. If the money we raise helps find a cure for cancer and that allows a family to keep their loved ones then I couldn't be prouder.

This years 2019 Spring rally target is set at $2,000,000 plus and whilst I'd love to say we achieved that personally anything that you can give helps. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.

Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below and may the force be with us always..........

Yours friendly neighbourhood Shitboxers

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.
