Hold onto your Akubras because team "No Wuckas" is about to rock your world! Andy and James are driving headfirst into the legendary Autumn 2024 Shitbox Rally 🚗💨. That's right, "No wuckas" is taking their can-do spirit, an untrustworthy Shitbox, and a ton of good vibes from Adelaide to Perth, venturing through the wild lands of the Northern Territory.
Can Andy snag a Shitbox that's cheaper than a cup of coffee? ☕ Will Andy's mainland visa be approved, or will he be stuck on an island with nothing but cold nights and warm families? Can "No Wuckas" conquer the Aussie outback with the finesse of a kangaroo on a trampoline? 🦘
The answer to all these questions and more awaits! Stay tuned dear friends as Andy and James embark on their epic journey across the vast Australian landscape.
Now, onto the serious part, 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.
I think everyone I know has been impacted by cancer in one way or another and these funds go to the Cancer Council. 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.
