Our Story …

DONATIONS CAN BE MAKE FROM THIS PAGE

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2019!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes 5150kms from Perth to Sydney, via Uluru...

We are doing the rally in an old ute of ours (was ours in the early 2000's) that was left to die on a farm 10 years ago, we managed to track it down and convince the owner to donate it to the cause. We always hoped that the car was mechanically pretty good (hey it's a Toyota right?), but we had no idea how beat up and stanky the old Red Rocket had become. See video to the right...

We are quite proud to be doing all of the work to our car ourselves in Canberra. It is looking as though we will come in under the $1000 spend on the car!

Any left over money will go into our fund raising account for this very worthy and special cause. Everyone knows somebody touched by cancer and it's through events like this one that everyday people can contribute to beating cancer.

A massive thank you to friends, family and colleagues for any donation or support you can provide. If you have gotten this far please consider following through with a donation of any kind (all you Canberra Public Servants... nudge nudge).

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 2019 rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. 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. Please make sure to 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, 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.

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.
