** Last target update 9th April 2019**
My Dad passed away due to cancer at the young age of 66, as a personal target I'd like to reach this amount $66k raised total over our last 3 rallies plus this upcoming one.
The new target of $21305 for the 2019 rally gets us there.
We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2019!!
Shitbox Rally is THE largest independent fundraiser for Cancer Council.
This would not be the case without all of the very generous donations from friends, family, co workers and complete strangers. Cancer is a terrible illness that nobody deserves to go through, ever. Raising much needed funds for continued research will hopefully improve recovery rates for many types of cancer.
The 2019 Rally will be a very special event, not only is it the 10th anniversary rally (my 4th in total) but it FINALLY starts from our home state of WA! It also has the most incredible route being planned as we speak, Perth to Sydney via Uluru over 10 days.
This will crank the required endurance levels up a notch over previous rallies and our car choice will need to be on point. Last year we really raised the bar by lowering our car standards to a very questionable convertible 70's Beetle, and we still made it to Darwin! (Thanks to our amazing buddy group, gaffa tape, cable ties, 17 litres of oil, a farmer along the way and a lot of luck!)
This year we are still shopping in the 1970's car classifieds and hope to provide you with some laughs along the way. Sleeping arrangements will simply be in our car seats for 9 nights as setting up tents is overrated and swags are bloody huge! (no car mounted hammocks this year :( )
Watch this space as the adventure unfolds, in true Shitbox Rally style we will just - "Let it Develop"
We really appreciate any $ you can donate, everything over $2 is a tax deduction
Thanks in advance,
Tim & Hayley Buckner
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:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
