* Dedicated to our dear friend Phil Alexander *
We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2019 in a bid to raise a record amount of funds for cancer research. Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Councils in Australia and is now in its 10th year. It is going to be an epic challenge for us and our 1977 Valiant - Perth to Sydney via Uluru in 10 days! But that's nothing compared with the daily challenge faced by those living with cancer. Our personal fundraising target is a whopping $10,000 so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.
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.
