Our Story …

Tommo & Gaz (AKA Vanny Devito) have now completed the Spring Shitbox Rally from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville. We loved driving so much that we went about 1,300km further North and clocked up approx 6,000km in the car together.


The Rally may have finished, Vanny has been auctioned off for $450 with the proceeds going to Cancer Council Australia, but we are still just under $1,000 shy of our $10,000 target.


Please donate so we can hit our target of $10k for Cancer Council Australia.


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.

raised: $2,362,128
target: $2,000,000

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

Hi All,

Gareth and I have safely made it back from one hell of a drive. We have hit close to 6,000km in the car together, raised over $9,000 for Cancer Council and seem some amazing places and met some amazing people. We can't thank you enough to all those who have donated, this is one of the reasons we did the drive to raise as much as we could for Cancer Council Australia. The page is still open for anyone who wishes to donate and we would be forever grateful for your donation. Thank you again for the support.

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.
