What a privilege to be accepted into the 2019 Shitbox Rally 10 year anniversary. Follow with interest as we raise money for the Cancer Council in the biggest Shitbox of all. A 10 day endeavour navigating a car worth less than $1000 more than 5000km across the continent. Perth to Sydney via Uluru no less! Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and raising these funds is something that means so much to us. Along with other family members that have since past because of cancer, my father battles prostate cancer perpetually whilst other dear friends suffer immensely today. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but we'll be gunning for much more. The overall target this year is to break the $2,000,000 barrier, adding to the already massive $14,000,000 collected from the previous 9 years. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page, the blog post below and our own 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:
