Our Story …

Above all the Shitbox Rally, which each year sees a couple of hundred crappy cars race along tracks meant only for 4x4s and endure daily distances even truckies would struggle with, is all about a great cause. It's by far the biggest independent fund-raiser for Cancer Council, with over FIFTEEN MILLION dollars raised so far!

For its tenth year, for the first time, the rally will traverse the Australian continent from West to East, taking in all five of its biggest states and its spiritual heart, Uluru.

Clearly we're doing this partly as an excuse to see some incredible sights, partly to embarrass ourselves with poor Mexican cultural references, but mostly because we want to make a difference. Each team has to raise at least $5000, which is a cool million to help conduct and fund cancer research, work to prevent cancer and support sufferers. And last year’s rally raised almost double that!

These funds 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 you can give is greatly appreciated. You can follow our progress at http://fb.me/PiranhaPinata

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.

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.
