We can't wait to be part of the crazy rally family again! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes 5150kms from Perth to Sydney, via Uluru... Now if this ain't country.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 10th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 - and team Doppelbrenner is aiming to achieve $8,000 this year (or maybe $10,000?).
These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.
We all have seen the hardship that cancer can cause with friends and family. Jan lost his youngest brother to cancer when he was 16 years old, and Gunnar and Frank have experienced serious cases in their communities. Every dollar counts - and donations are of course tax deductible. And if you are around, please join our fundraiser BBQ on March 16th!
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.
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 $20 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
