Cancer has touched many of us in many different ways and our families are no different to anyone else's, and yes, we too have felt the devastating effects of cancer. We believe it's time to act and raise money for cancer research, so we have decided to get involved in the Cancer Council's 10th Anniversary Shitbox Rally (SBR) to raise money for cancer research. In May 2019, we will be driving 5150km’s from Perth to Sydney via Kalgoorlie, Uluru, Cameron’s Corner and onto Sydney, just to name a few places, all in 10 days in a car that costs under $1,000.
We are participating in the 2019 10th Anniversary Shitbox Rally in loving memory and in tribute to the family members that we ourselves have lost to cancer, and myself David / my father, being diagnosed with cancer in 2016, we believe this is a worthwhile challenge.This rally has nothing to do with speed or who finishes first - it's just all about finishing and raising both awareness and funds to fight cancer.
We are reaching out to you, looking for help to raise money in order to make the starting line. We need to raise at least $7500.00 and once we reach the destination of Sydney, the car will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to the Cancer Council.
Here's a link where you can make an online donation to their team. Simply go to the link below and click on the green “Give Now” button.

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, on a 7 day drive across Australia 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:
