We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2019!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes 5150kms from Perth to Sydney, via Uluru... Shitbox Rally is the largest community led 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 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2019 rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. 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.
We are off to Perth in the morning to collect our trusty steed to embark on the steeplechase known as the Shitbox Rally 2019.
We look forward to returning in one piece (hopefully!) on 17 May.
If you are at a loss for something to do on the afternoon of the 17th, please come to Centennial Park for to see the (sad and sorry) spectacle of the the finishers limping to the finish line - it truly can be a sight to behold and a great way to scare small children! :-)
In the meantime, the collection for a truly worthy cause continues and we would really like to increase our fundraising, so please share any of our emails with a link to our fundraising page to 5 or 10 of your friends, tell them what good guys we are and implore them to be generous!!!
