Everyone has been or will be touched by cancer at least once in their lives, either personally or through someone they love. Pete and Kris have been and that’s why they decided to enter the Shitbox Rally again for 2019 and help raise money for the Cancer Council. The Cancer Council is the nation’s peak non-government cancer control organisation and advises the Australian Government and other agencies on practices and policies to help prevent, detect and treat cancer. Since its inception in 2009 Shitbox Rally has raised nearly $15 million for the Cancer Council. For the first couple of rallies Pete and Kris set a modest target of $4,000, and through your generosity and a lot of hard work from Kris and Pete and their supporters they ended up each time raising more than $7,500 towards a rally total of $1.6 million and $1.8 million respectively. Last year they set their sights on a $10,000 target and ended up raising more than $14,000 towards a rally total of just less than $2 million. In 2019 they're going all out for $15,000 to help Shitbox Rally crack the $2 million mark for the first time ever. You can help Kris and Pete to meet their target and help in the fight against cancer by giving whatever you can -- donations greater than $2 are even tax deductible. The more people that know about cancer, the work of the Cancer Council and the part Shitbox Rally plays in the fight against cancer, the greater the impact so please spread the word among your family, friends and work colleagues by liking us on facebook (www.facebook.com/BeardiesBucket) and sharing our page.

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:
