Having first heard about Shitbox Rally after Mum (Nana) died and years of applying, we’ve finally made the cut, along with another 249 lucky teams. It has been worth the wait and three practice runs in Mystery Box Rally, to be finally accepted in the extra special, extra long, 10th Anniversay Rally.
Not only is Shitbox Rally the largest community fundraiser for Cancer Council, the rally this year is also the longest, trekking over 5,150km in 10 days from the west coast of Australia to the east.
But as you know, the adventure is not just about the rally. It’s also the months of fundraising leading up to May 2019.
We need to raise a minimum of $5,000 to get to the start line, but we have doubled our annual goal to $10,000. Collectively, teams are hoping to reach $2million for the first time ever.
WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN DO THIS!!!

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.
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:
