UPDATE: DUE TO OUTSTANDING SUPPORT, THE SHADY GLENS HAVE REVISED THEIR TARGET UPWARDS TO $22,000+

We are thrilled to announce that 'The Shady Glens' are taking part in the Spring 2019 Shitbox Rally!! This year all the teams are driving their chosen chariots from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville. We are participating in this adventure primarily because we have both been touched, as have so many, 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 however most teams raise well above this amount, as you can see with the Spring 2019 Rally target set at $2,000,000+. We, 'The Shady Glens', through a combination of generous Sponsors and Donators alongside fundraising events, have achieved $19,020 by 27th June 2019, pulling out all the stops in our ability to create fun and unique ways so to do. 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 make is greatly appreciated. We give our commitment to you that we will do our utmost to ensure that not only will you be supporting those who are impacted by Cancer moving forward, but will also enjoy every kilometre of our Rally Adventure as we depart Melbourne on route to Townsville! Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below. Many thanks in advance, Jono Papworth and Charlie Hill...aka 'The Shady Glens'.

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.
