Our Story …

We are thrilled to be taking part in the Shitbox Rally in 2019!! We'll be driving 5,100 km in a car valued under $1000 from Perth to Sydney via Uluru. This will be our first Rally and we are so excited to be a part of it.

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. 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.

Keep in touch with us via Facebook (www.facebook.com/burningberries) or Instagram (@burningberries), or 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.

Wishing you guys all best!! Some sage advice from our motorcycle adventures which may be useful - if you can’t fix the problem with a hammer, WD40 or duct tape, you’re f$&ked. Love Chris & Dilu, Team Berg!

We are so close to the halfway mark now! Thank you so much to our wonderful friends and family for all of your donations and support. We truly couldn't do it without you. A few quick updates:

1) We thrilled to announce the arrival of our new team member, Marilyna (named by the former owner), who is a beautiful 1999 Toyota Celica with plenty of experience (read: dents) and a non-working radio – but working air conditioning! Bonus!

2) We will be hosting the sausage sizzle at Bunnings Ashfield on 1 January 2019 (yep, New Year’s Day) to raise money for the Cancer Council and feed the hungry (hungover) masses. We are looking for some helpers on the day (two hour shifts) so please get in touch with either of us. And of course we would love you to come and say hello and snag a snag! 

As always, donations are still very encouraged and very appreciated (and makes a great Christmas present!). You can keep in touch and follow our journey via our Facebook and Instagram pages - search for @burningberries. We also now have a blog! Visit burningberries.com

Thank you so much to all our wonderful family and friends for your generosity and support. With your help, we have SMASHED our fundraising target, raising over $6,200 so far (and counting!). We are so overwhelmed and can't thank you enough. There's still time - donations are still very encouraged and very appreciated.

We will meet up with our car in Perth at the end of the week, before spending a few days relaxing and preparing for the rally. We will be at the start line at Optus Stadium in just over a week and we're feeling equal parts nervous and excited.

You will be able to follow us via our GPS at http://sbrx.traque.me/burning-berries, or keep in touch via our Facebook and Instagram pages - search for @burningberries.

See you in Sydney on 17 May!

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.
