Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally Autumn 2024! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Adelaide to Perth.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead 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 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. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

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.

<p>Team Beauty and the Beast drivers are Willie and Bron. </p><p></p><p>Ours is a classic blue collar love story; of nurse meets mechanic. Except our love story started a little later in life and has had the added joys and trials of blending our 3 kids along the way.</p><p></p><p>Cancer research is close to our hearts,&nbsp;having both lost parents to cancer battles. We are driving the rally in honour of my Dad, Max.</p><p></p><p>Max was super intelligent, quirky, a&nbsp;chemical scientist, avid gardener, woodwork genius, husband, dad to four and Opa (grandad)&nbsp;to ten. Max, my dad, also died of cancer. His short battle with cancer is a journey I will never forget. His memory has helped shape how I now live my life and was also the driving force for me to go back to Uni and study to become an Oncology/ Haematology Registered Nurse.</p><p></p><p>Willie is a FIFO worker who was raised by his Dad, Cliff, and Stepmother, Michelle, who have both also lost their lives to their cancer.&nbsp; Cliff became a suddenly single dad of two young children, he was a battler and life wasn't perfect but he keep his family together until he met and feel in love with Michelle. They added another three kids together to their make their family complete. </p><p></p><p>Cancer will sadly effect each and every single one of us and we hope in some small part that our journey on this shitbox rally will help make others life experiences with cancer a little less shit.</p><p></p><p>Follow our journey on our Instagram page </p><p>Willie and Bron (@beauty_and_the_beast_box_rally) • Instagram photos and videos</p>

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.

$41 million over the past 13 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.
