Meet Stuart, Conor, and their trusty companion, the 2000 Toyota Corolla lovingly dubbed "Rolla." This dynamic trio is gearing up for their third exhilarating adventure in the Shitbox Rally, a daring cross-country journey across the vast landscapes of Australia. Their mission goes beyond the thrill of the rally; it's a heartfelt endeavour to raise funds for the Cancer Council Australia.
As the Rolla roars to life, echoing unwavering determination, we aim to leave a lasting impact on the fight against cancer. Join us we navigate the unpredictable roads of Australia, from Adelaide to Perth via Uluru (Ayers Rock) weaving through the outback's red dust and Roo's and Road Trains, all in the name of a brighter, cancer-free future.
Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 and we need your support along the way.
Please give what you can and we'll do your best to provide some screen worthy entertainment along the way.
Thank you all,
Team Escaping from Tech
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:
