Our Story …

Marco and Nigel are very excited to be joining forces again to take part in Shitbox Rally 2019!! After a hugely successful 2016 Shitbox Rally where Marco and Nigel were crowned the Biggest Fundraisers for the event, the lifelong friends will be hitting the fundraising trail again to help raise much needed funds to support cancer research. Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia. In 2019, to mark the 10th year of the event the teams will be driving approx. 5150km’s from Perth to Sydney via Uluru! Yes, that’s right, that’s over 5000km’s in a dirty, dusty Shitbox of a car worth less than $1000! Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000. Marco and Nigel are hoping to far exceed the minimum and have set themselves the goal of raising $20,000 for the Cancer Council in 2019. The funds raised 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 great or small is greatly appreciated. To donate, please hit the DONATE NOW button on this page. If you have any questions, please let us know. We’d love to hear from our supporters! Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below You can also follow our progress on Instagram (@teammariobros) and Facebook (Shitbox Rally 2017 - Team Mario Bros) Thanks for your support and generosity!!

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, 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.

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 $20 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.
