Our Story …

We, Adam and Dave, are taking part in the Shitbox Rally this April 2024 and we're asking for your help!


Shitbox Rally is not a race, rather a challenge to achieve the unthinkable… To drive a car worth less than $1,500, approximately 3,500km from Adelaide to Uluru and on to Perth via some of its most formidable roads, all in the name of charity.


Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia. Our participation requires that we raise a minimum of $5,000 but we're aiming for $20,000 and that requires the help of our friends, family and business partners!


Getting our shitty old car on the road hasn't been easy but the fundraising is the hard part. We've all lost someone we love to this insidious disease so please dig deep because every dollar goes towards finding a cure. Make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.


Thank you.


Adam and Dave

Here's what I'm doing …

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.

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.

$46 million over the past 15 years 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.
