Bruce, Mike & the BATbox (formerly BATVAN) have once again committed to taking up the fight to Cancer by taking part in the Shitbox Rally in 2019!! (Perth to Sydney in 10 days) Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council Australia and is now in its 10th year raising more than $17M so far. The Shitboxers have set their sights on achieving a further $2 Million after just falling short in 2018 at $1.97M. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation or any form of support you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and our Facebook page "BATbox - 2019 Shitbox Rally for Cancer Council", Thanks TEAM BATbox
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 10 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.
We hope you can join us via Facebook & Instagram as we travel in May from Perth to Sydney via Uluru over 10 days in this!!!! It's the Shitbox Rally that gains the attention and puts the focus on the need for vital research through Cancer Council.
Thanks' to all of you who have jumped on board and supported our team and donated towards Cancer Council for their research teams to increase survival rates in Australia and abroad. 5 weeks to go and the map is looking a little daunting in the little Corolla after travelling in reasonable comfort in the mighty BATVAN for the last 3 rallys including circumnavigating Oz last year. You will all receive a link so you can track our progress along the way or lack of it!!!
We're two weeks out now and only a few items left to do to the BATBOX - Two Way Install, Light Bar Wiring, new tyres going on today thanks to Richards Tyrepower, pack it up, fill it with juice and head off on the toughest rally for us so far. We will be doing a total of 5188km from Optus Stadium thru to Uluru then wind our way thru to Sydney, 2251 on the tar and a whopping 2937 of Australian dirt. The Rally has hits its target of $2Million but we wont stop there.
Thanks to all of you who are listed here as supporters of Cancer Council, you combined with 249 other teams & their supporters have collectively raised enough money to fund somewhere around 4-6 teams performing the highest priority research into improved cancer screening methods, diagnosis, treatments and ultimately cures. Thank you :)
