The Plow Kings are pleased to announce we are taking our mighty, sub $1,000 chariot from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville, participating in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring Edition (October 19th-25th). We take part in this rally not only to have a once in a lifetime experience, but to raise funds for the Cancer Council. Both of us have had our lives touched by family and/or friends having been diagnosed with Cancer. Some have been successful in their fight, some are still fighting, and sadly others have been taken far too soon.
It is our honour to take our shitbox on this epic journey, raising as much money as we can to help the Cancer Council support those in need, and to keep working to improve the survival chances of those with cancer. The fundraising is the hard (and most important) part, so anything you can give will be greatly appreciated.
We have set our aim at $7,500, and we hope to be able to smash past that! Be sure to follow us via this page and the blog below.
We will do our best to keep updates flowing, and when the rally comes we will be doing our best to utilise social media to share the journey with all those who are interested. So keep coming back for updates and new links!
Join us by following our journey in our 5 poster with an AU attached!!
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.
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:
