Why Team Holdin On ?
I chose the Team name for a number of reasons..
*For all those Holdin On to Hope for a cure..
*For Family members Holdin On to their loved ones in need..
*And to those that find Holdin On so hard and suffer from the mental health issues associated with it..
Also a play on words for our family and friends and their love of Everything Holden.. Without them this journey would not be possible.
We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2019!!
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 .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. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.
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.
