Hi there supporters, Cancer Busters are back and we are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in the 2019 Shitbox Rally!! I have a new team member, Cameron Trappett, a man who knows nothing about cars and isn't big on camping out. But, he is keen as mustard to help out and raise money for a great cause. Camerons' dad died of cancer, I've had bowel cancer and my sister died of cancer. So we reckon something needs to be done...and that is good research to find a cure and better treatments. We aim to raise at least $8000 as part of a $2m goal for the Shitbox Rally. 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. If everyone chips in a bit, we'll end up with a lot. You can follow our progress on our Facebook Page,@CancerBusters . Thanks everyone. Mark.
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.
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:
