Our Story …

Howdy good people!

After many years of trying, Leigh and John are proud to announce… we have finally booked our spot in the 2019 SHITBOX RALLY!!!

What’s the Shitbox Rally??? It's an adventure for a cause! We buy a shitbox (car valued less than $1000) and drive from Perth to Sydney via Uluru with 250 other teams to raise money for a charity that’s close to everyone’s heart.

We must raise a minimum of $5,000, but we’re hoping to hit $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.

I’m sure we all know someone who has been affected by this horrible disease, so please dig deep and donate! We are the HD Hound Dogs and we’re getting down n dirty in the fight against cancer! Please follow and share our story,

This rally will be dedicated to family & friends of ours who have both won and lost battles with cancer. RIP

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, 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.

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 $20 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.
