Our Story …

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 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 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.

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, this year for the 10th year anniversary rally, over a 10 day across Australia endeavour 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.

Ok so here we go!!! Vic and I are about to launch our fundraising campaign for the 2019 shitbox rally! This will be the biggest rally to date going from Perth to Sydney via Uluru! May 8th - 17th 2019.

This past 6 months I have lost a family member, a close friend and a friends mum all to this horrid disease. One in her 40's and two early 50's, its just not fair. I know there is a cure for cancer out there and its not that far away. Please get behind us and help us raise as much as we can for cancer research and awareness. Even $5 can make a difference. Please donate to our page, or share the link with anyone you think may want to help. Thanks again for supporting us. Amanda & Vic

Hello everyone following our 2019 team! Thanks to our main sponsor Neds who have this year generously taken our whole car over, we are changing our name from the Blonde Bandits to Lady Luck. For those of you who aren't familiar with Lady Luck she is an iconic lucky charm that many people keep close by to watch over them in their travels, endeavours and adventures. She must be already working her magic, as this year the ever inspiring and amazing friend Heather Ferrier has put back on her rally shoes to team up with me as co driver for the 10th Annual Shitbox Rally. Thank you Vick Patterson for staying onboard not as co-driver this year but as my no 1 supporter, friend, painter, artist and all things amazing. You will always be part of the team and we can't wait to see what you will come up with for the car design and the highly anticipated art auction!

Most of you know that my reason for doing the rally for the 4th time was inspired by Heather. Heather introduced me to the rally some 5 years ago when I flew to Townsville to watch her cross the line in this amazing event. At that time heather had been diagnosed with stage 4 Breast and Liver cancer, and to see her complete this event was so inspiring. 5 years on Heather is still going strong despite the diagnosis due to advances in treatments and medications that the cancer councils no 1 fundraiser, the shitbox rally has been able to contribute to. Heather has hit a few hurdles along the way, but being able to do this rally with her is amazing. So please support us in trying to reach our $20,000 target as we drive our shitbox Toyota Camry with over 300,000k's across Australia from Perth to Sydney via Uluru, kicking off May 8-17, mostly off road!

If you or anyone you know are interested in sponsoring or donating to us please pass on our details. We are also looking for anyone who might be willing to donate fuel and spare tyres!!!!

Thank you again for all of you who have supported us in the past and we look forward to taking you on this journey with us.

Amanda and Heather

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 $15 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.
