Woo Hoo - we got in!! This is our first time in the Shitbox Rally and we are super excited! But it's not all about the adventure and fun times along the way for us. Like so many others, our families have been touched by Cancer. Some made it through but sadly some did not. We are also doing this rally because it's an experience that will be challenging on a daily basis. There's bound to be highs and lows. We'll need support and we will give our support to anyone who needs it - like we've done for our families and friends when they've travelled along the road to recovery or rest. Help us make that a road less travelled. Help us raise money as we continue to fight against this disease. Together we can make a difference.
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:
