Our Story …

"Lets buy a 2WD car for less than $1000 and drive across Australia on its most difficult and remote roads" Sounds like a great idea, right?

We think so!! Especially if it is for charity!

Team BIG MICKS (thats Micky G and Corks to you) are proud announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2019!!

Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. Beginning May 8th 2019, 250 teams will drive their colourful shitboxes from Perth to Sydney via Uluru over 10 days. It should be interesting, difficult and a whole lot of fun!!

To gain entry, all teams must raise a minimum of $5,000. Most teams raise well above this amount - The total goal for this year's event is 2 MILLION DOLLARS!

These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity, and we also are looking forward to a great adventure!

The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated!! We are setting a goal of $5,000 but will hopefully be able to push well beyond this!!

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

Thank-you!

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, 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.

raised: $2,640,505

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 $15 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.
