Our Story …

The U.S. Embassy Australia and U.S. Ambassador to Australia Caroline Kennedy are so excited to take part in Shitbox Rally Autumn 2024! 


On February 4, World Cancer Day, the U.S. Embassy Australia launched the U.S.-Australia Cancer Moonshot Initiative, highlighting an important dimension of the U.S.-Australia alliance: our shared experience with and collaboration on the research, prevention, and treatment of cancer. 


“Like every family, my family and Embassy families have lost too many people we love to cancer. In September 2022, on the 60th anniversary of President Kennedy’s Moonshot speech, President Biden relaunched the Cancer Moonshot: an ambitious effort to end cancer as we know it. We know that no one country can end the fight against cancer alone, and the United States has no better partner in this fight than Australia. We can't wait to highlight the work being done in both the United States and Australia to advance research, share best practices, and improve the lives of people with cancer, survivors, and their families.” -- Ambassador Caroline Kennedy 


Thank you to all those who support our efforts to raise as much money as we can for Cancer Council...in the most Australian way possible!

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.

Fantastic job Ambassador Kennedy - who knows what a trip to Bunnings will bring other than a sausage sandwich. This month February marks my 2 year diagnosis with leukaemia. The magnificent work done by my medical team is so extraordinary so the more we can do to make a difference to help each and every person, their families and friends through this hard journey is wonderful and I’m so grateful. Thanks Ambassador Kennedy and the US Embassy team

Hi Robyn -- thank you for your generous donation! We agree, who'd have thought a Bunnings snag would lead to this? We are so grateful that you shared your health story with us and that you've received the best of care. We agree that the work of cancer researchers and healthcare professionals in Australia, the US, and around the world is extraordinary. All the best -- Ambassador Kennedy and the team

Cancer effects all of us in different ways, and helping tonfund Research to find Cures for Cancer is vital important. I love the fact that US Ambassador Caroline Kennedy along with the USA Embassy Staff have got down & dirty, and gone off road in the Australian Outback by participating in the Shitbox Rally, and creating wonderful memories of their involvement-- maybe they might participate in another Shitbox Rally in the foreseeable future.

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.
