We are in!!! Jo and Cheryl will be driving from Adelaide to Perth via Oodnadatta in the Shitbox Rally Autumn 2024. Two friends, costumes, 80’s music, hours and hours to to talk, 224 other teams, in a car worth under $1500, what could be more fun than that....and what could possibly go wrong?
Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 14th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the Autumn 2024 rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. These funds go to Cancer Council to raise much needed funds for cancer research.
This adventure will involve a tutu (or two), dust, mud, camping, lots and lots of driving, music, meeting new people and probably changing a tyre or two as well plus learning a bit more about how to keep a car running day after day.

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,500, 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.
