We (Roy and Paul Frylink) 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 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the $2,000,000 target.
These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.Most of us will either know of or know someone who has been affected by cancer.
We have had our fair share of family tragedies - loosing our Mother, Grandmother, Uncle, Cousin and Father in law to this insidious disease. Paul has even had his own scare - as Roy would put it, now down to 50% in the tadpoles department... Now, most recently (Oct 2018), long term friend Ben lost his dad (John) to a short and unexpected battle with Leukemia.
We have decided to do something about it by raising money for cancer council. The cancer Council not only provides money for research, but also in supporting families who are affected by Cancer.
So, given that 2019 will be the 10th year that shitbox will have been going and the 2019 rally will run over 10 days, we have decided to put a $10,000 target on our fundraising. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.

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.
Over $26 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
