We are thrilled to announce that 'The Shady Glens' have completed the Spring 2019 Shitbox Rally, with all 250 teams driving their chosen chariots from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville, all having been touched by the impact that Cancer has on family and friends.
'Shitbox Rally' is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. All teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 with the Spring 2019 Rally target set at $2,000,000+.
We, 'The Shady Glens', initially set ourselves an ambitious fundraising target of $10,000 however through the support of generous Sponsors, Suppliers and Donators, combined with an array of fundraising events, achieved a massive $21,400 by 13th November 2019.

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.
Hi fellow Ralliers,
Just wanted to let everyone know that we are really excited about the 2019 Spring Rally, looking forward to meeting each and every Team. We are 'The Shady Glens', aka Jono and Charlie, being Rally Virgins, eagerly awaiting our first experience!
Cheers for now.
To all those involved in the 2019 Spring Rally, our heart felt thanks for the experience of a life time. 'Shitbox Rallies' has to be one of the most professional outfits in the land, founded and led by an absolute legend in James Freeman, who gets our vote for 'Australian of the Year', definitely deserving of an 'Order of Australia' nomination!
Thankyou one and all,
Charlie and Jono, The Shady Glens.
