Never ones to turn down a new activity or adventure, and the obligatory cold brew, we're travelling to the opposite side of the country for the Shitbox Rally's 10 year anniversary and the biggest rally to date.
We'll be pimping our shitbox, donning ridiculous ensembles and driving dirt roads and famous 4WD routes like the Oodnadatta track 5150kms from Perth to Sydney, via Uluru and Lake Eyre. Not only are we passionate about the cause, doing our part to raise $2,000,000 for the Cancer Council, we're super excited to be touring some of the most remote parts of the country.
While you may be part of the seasoned Shitbox support crew, there's a lot about this rally that's new. It's the longest rally ever by distance - which means our piece of shit has to last 5150kms instead of the 3600kms tackled in previous years. It's also the longest rally - 10 days compared to 7. We need to raise $5,000 instead of $4,000 - but with your help we're hoping to smash that target out of the park. The overall fundraising target for the 2019 Shitbox Rally is a record $2,000,000.
Funds raised from our epic adventure will go to the Cancer Council so please give generously and get involved in Al and Al's latest shenanigan.
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:
