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.
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.
Thank you to our wonderful friends and family who have so generously donated to the Cancer Council! We feel very humbled by your support :)

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
