Our Story …

Tommo & Gaz (AKA Vanny Devito) are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2019 Spring! We will be driving our Shitbox, a 2002 Ford Econovan, from Adelaide to Melbourne and then head up towards Townsville, via Birdsville which is just over 4,563km . . . We aim to raise over $10,000 in the process for Cancer Council Australia.


Cancer is shit and like many others we have both seen loved ones affected and taken by the disease. We want to do our part (and see some of the stranger parts of the country) so get on board Vanny.

The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. You can keep up-to-date on our antics via Facebook @vannydevito2019



Here's a bit about the rally . . .

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2019 Spring rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. These funds go to the Cancer Council Australia and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.


Cheers, Tommo & Gaz AKA Vanny Devito x

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.

Just over a year ago I had to have plastic surgery on my nose to remove a BCC (Basal Cell Carcinoma) which I thought was simple wart on the side of my nose. Today I had another full body check of moles and freckles and it reminded me that I was lucky that my cancer wasn't more serious, but many others aren't that lucky.

Gaz and I are driving Vanny Devito form Melbourne to Townsville as part of Shitbox Rally to raise much needed funds for Cancer Council to provide ongoing services to those fighting this disease.

Please spread the word.

Love Vanny Devito

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.
