Introducing the 2019 Cancer Council NSW Autumn Shitbox Rally team featuring the “Loo Scrubbers” Natalie Taylor and Eleonora Feletto who will be driving “Rage Against the Latrine”. Natalie and Eleonora are cancer researchers who focus on bowel cancer and hereditary syndromes which increase risk of cancer (e.g. Lynch Syndrome). Working in the bowels of the Cancer Research Division at Cancer Council NSW, they look past the “sh!t” to bring hope to Australians through their research. They will carry this ethos into the Shitbox Rally, by turning a trashy car into something worthy and beautiful.
The “Loo Scrubbers” will use their superpowered toilet brushes to fight bowel cancer and raise awareness of Lynch Syndrome nationwide. Natalie and Eleonora will be joining the 250 teams driving their shitboxes 5150kms from Perth to Sydney, via Uluru.
You’ll be hearing regular updates from the “Loo Scrubbers” who are also looking to clean out your wallets – donations big or small are NOW being accepted. Help us reach our target of $5,000 to contribute to the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia which is now in its 10th year. If you have any Rally or Latrine related advice for them, they’re all ears!
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:
