Our Story …

* 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.

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.
