Our Story …

Why would two otherwise demonstrably sensible women, Trisha Cashmere and Suzanne Mackenzie decide to participate in the Shit Box Rally and drive a rather old Camry across Australia, the long way?

There is a strong personal motivation. Angus, Trisha’s son, who is a close friend of Suzanne’s son from pre-school days has twice been diagnosed with cancer. Lots of people say that watching a child being treated for cancer is pretty much the worst thing that could happen. We would suggest it’s definitely up there. Fortunately, Angus has come out the other end and he is currently a healthy 15 year old year 10 student at Cronulla High School.

Having seen first hand that the experience of cancer is not equitable, that the unfairness for some people just starts at diagnosis, and continues as they try to navigate the system, we would like to make things easier.

So, the plan is to work as hard as possible to make the pathway a bit easier for those who follow. We are aiming to raise $20k by May 2019 for the Cancer Council. Then we are going to have a blast driving from Perth to Sydney in Angus the Camry with a whole bunch of people who are similarly looking to support the work of the Cancer Council.Any support that you can offer is greatly appreciated. We are open to any and all suggestions!

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, 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.

What can we say? Sorry that it ended the way it did but very happy no-one was hurt! Felt like a vulture pinching the alternator but it really did save our bacon and another of our group bought our car to take home and use as a daily to perhaps do it again in the future. Thanks again, Richard and Trish (Noahs Ark) PS fantastic job on the fundraising!

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.
