Hello everybody! Welcome to our team: Mikey (UK) and Henry (Aus).
We are very excited to announce that the plan we hatched over a few cold beers of completing a Shitbox Rally has come to life and we will be taking part in Shitbox Rally Autumn 2024! In the Autumn 2024 edition of the rally we will be completing a route like no other from Adelaide to Perth. The towns we will pass through include Roxby Downs, Oodnadatta, Yulara (Uluru), Warburton, Laverton, Southern Cross before finally reaching Perth approximately 4,000km later. There is a catch however, these kilometres need to be completed in a 2wd vehicle with a maximum purchase price of $1,500.
For those who may not have heard of the Shitbox Rally before, it is Australia's largest community lead fundraiser for Cancer Council and is now in its 14th year. Over the past 14 years, the Rally has fundraised almost $39 million dollars towards the Cancer Council and our team DayForIt plan to do our bit to increase that figure even further!
We appreciate everybody's support, and would love to you follow along on our Instagram @dayforit_shitboxrally so you can stay up to date with the car with purchase and all happenings on this front before we commence on our adventure in April 2024!
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.
$41 million over the past 13 years has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
