We are really pleased to announce that after several years of trying and 1 false start that we're taking part in the Shitbox Rally in 2019!! Our team (Dirty Deeds) is made up of Chad Northan and Dave Vuletic. Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and 2019 will be it's 10th Year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the $2,000,000 target. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Almost everyone has been affected by cancer in some way, either directly, or someone within their family or circle of friends, so any money that we are able to raise to assist with finding a cure or increasing people's quality of life will have a wide spreading reach within our community. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below and we will be updating this page as we progress on the shitbox journey!
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.
Just a quick update, Dave and I have spoken to a little mate of ours Levi Surjan, He's 11yrs old and recently been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. We asked him to theme our Shitbox Gemini for this years rally. He's bravely fighting the disease with the motto with his family "Lets get this shit done".
Keep up to date when we do the big reveal.
Just want to give a big shout out to Steve and the team at DeVine Cellars Noranda for the kind donation to the Fundraising.
