We've said goodbye to friends, family, and workmates. We've watched helplessly as friends have said farewell to their children. They didn't "lose their battle". I can't and won't accept that they "lost". They did run out of time though. This fundraising is about buying time for others. About trying to do something, for those that are fighting right at this moment.
Every bit helps.
Thanks from Macca and (the literal) Shorty, Davo
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.
To all those that are unaware. Shorty had to step down from 2019 due to a pending family expanison mid-rally. We welcom Mark Davo to the cause, and associated shenanigans.
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.
