We've taken my love for flamingos and everything pink with Glen's passion for cars and mechanics and have joined the Shitbox Rally to raise money for Cancer Council. We will be saying Flock You to Cancer in a flamingo inspired shitbox driving from Adelaide to Perth over 8 days!
We are aiming to raise $7000 before our Rally in April 2024. We all know someone who has been affected by cancer, whether they were fortunate to have fought it, are currently fighting it or have sadly lost their battle with it. We are doing this for them. All proceeds go to helping this cause.
We would love for you to show your support and help us along the way. No donation is too small, it all helps! If you would like to include a name or a message to be placed on the car with your donation please let us know. We plan on saving the bonnet space for special mentions or names to take them with us on our travels. Please continue to follow us as we will post updates of the preparation of the car and our journey.
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.
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:
