Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2019!! 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 $2,000,000 target for the Rally as a whole. 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 you can give is greatly appreciated.

Grahame and I have both been affected by cancer and we wanted to do something crazy and mad to raise money to help make peoples lives better. So clearly the best idea was to drive from Perth to Sydney in a car worth no more than $1000. We are really excited and cannot wait to take part in ShitBox Rally 2019 and help to save people lives.

We will be asking all friends, family, work colleagues and generally anyone who has had contact with us to donate. The more money we raise the more people will live for longer and beat this horrible disease.

We would also be very grateful for team sponsorship's, and we allowed to paint and logo it up the car. Once we have a car, we will be updating this page regularly and keeping all our fans informed.

Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

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.

Ben - About me

I am a property valuer living in Wollongong, who loves beer, golf, my friends and yes, my wife. Wouldn't say I am the most mechanical person but I will learn on the road. I am soooooooo excited to experience this journey with Grahame, who was one of my groomsmen and is one of my best friends.Also after the pain I experienced because of Cancer I know the money we raise will help reduce other people’s pain.

Grahame - About me

I'm Grahame but call me G because who has time to say the whole thing. 

I'm a consultant in the software industry living in Sydney. I love a good beer with family and friends or even the random stranger.   

Cancer impacts everyone to some extent. The money we raise will help reduce the impact or even find a cure.  

I'm always looking for fun and crazy things to do, so this is right up my ally and being able to do it in a shitbox with one of my best mates over 5000kms is going to be a crazy fun adventure.

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.
