We're in the Shitbox Rally Autumn 2024 - driving our 90s economy car shitbox from Adelaide to Perth (and certainly to Adelaide from Northern NSW, and maybe back from Perth?). That's about 10k km in a few weeks!
But, we aren't just doing this for fun (but it will be). Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for Cancer Council Australia and is now in its 14th year.
Part of our participation is that we will raise at least $5k for Cancer Council (and the Autumn 2024 rally target is set at $2m+).
PLEASE scroll down below and donate a little or a lot (whatever you feel is appropriate) to help Cancer research. It's a cause that means something for all of us.
These funds go to Cancer Council and we are 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:
