Our Story …

We are doing the rally to honour our dad who died way too young, aged just 62. We were teenagers when he got cancer back in the seventies and must pay tribute to our mum Betty who nursed and cared for him through the tough times.

As we both approach our 60’s, it becomes clearer just how much of life there is to be lived and how devastating cancer is to families and communities across the country. We’ve had so many relatives and friends touched by cancer and we both have people close to us that are living with cancer.

So, it’s a great opportunity to help raise funds that will help to sustain the research effort that is making a difference and saving lives. James Freeman and his Shitbox Rally team are awesome. It will be a great challenge to do the rally, but raising the money is even harder.

Please get on board and help us raise money for cancer research.

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.

Dave and Jeff at the rally planning session - where do we find a car for $1000 that we first have to drive across to Perth and then it has to survive the gruelling 5,000+ km on the rally to Sydney via Uluru?

Our Shitbox arrived earlier this week! Thanks Nick Nation for being generous on price.

Its a real Shitbox for sure, but it runs OK. Commodore 2003 VY Wagon, 290,000 km on the clock, radiator leak, and a suspect alternator. I'm sure our mechanic will find other issues as well. Now the fun begins in getting this roadworthy, registered, and then prepared for the rally. We have plenty of time, but the 200 days or so until the rally start will pass by very quickly.

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.
