Why again we hear you cry!!! When it was announced that for this year only to mark Shitbox’s 10 year anniversary the rally would be 10 days / 5,150kms rather than 7 days / 3,800kms we looked at each other with a big grin, the red dust, bone shaking 12 hour days, queuing for hours for petrol & numerous tyre blow outs a distant memory and said “Make it Up as You Go” must be part of this. The Little Red Devil on the other hand said if you expect me to drive from Perth to Sydney via Uluru across the outback you are getting me stronger tyres and a radio so I don’t have to listen to you two!!!! But it is for cancer research and as so many people have been touched by this horrible illness I will try my best to get you both across the finish line AGAIN!!!!
Last year we managed to raise a whopping $9,350AUD and the whole rally raised $1.974AUD in total for Cancer Council. All teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000AUD and we are hoping to raise as much as we can and are extremely proud to be doing our bit to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give will be greatly appreciated.
This year we will be covering TLRD in glow in the dark stars, if you would like to put a name and / or a message on a star for donating to our page please let us know! As last year, we are funding all our own costs associated with the rally so bar an admin fee taken by the organisers, your donation will go straight to Cancer Council.
Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and The Little Red Devils facebook page.
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:
