Our Story …

In 2018, Myles lost a close mate (Mikey - 32 yrs) and Mel lost her Grandfather (Dida - 79yrs) to cancer. This rally is close to our hearts and we aim to raise over $5,000 to donate to the Cancer Council for research for all of our futures.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for The Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 9th year. Any donation you make will motivate us to work harder and harder towards this cause and it will be truly appreciated.

We are so proud to be a part of this. Our participation in the Shitbox Rally is to honour those we have lost to cancer, to celebrate how precious life is, to be selfless and mindful with like-minded Shitboxers and to raise much needed funds for cancer research.

We would like to invite anyone who donates to write a message on our Shitbox, it could simply be your name or a message of support for us or a message to a loved one that you have lost to cancer so they can be part of the journey across Australia.

You can follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

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.

Yew! We have found our shitbox, what a beauty! But for $1,000 we have a lot of work to do lol The first turn of the key and she didn't start... But with a second hand replacement battery, a wash down and an oil change later she's kind of alive and ready enough for testing and desert prep to begin!

Last night we went to Eastern Creek Drags with the van and had a brilliant time! It was a special trip because this is something Myles has done previously with Mikey. It was a great night had by all including Mikeys brothers Joe and Martin.

We have found the perfect material for our curtains! Its completely cactus! Haha!

We’re very excited to see the van taking shape. We want to make it livable so that we can sleep in it during the rally. We have black-out fabric to help with reducing sunlight each morning and we hope to test it out this summer.

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.
