Once again we are heading off on a Shitbox adventure, our third this time, driving from Adelaide to Perth via Uluru. We know how to get from Adelaide to Uluru, but no idea after that. From what we remember from our school geography, it’s all desert!!
This rally will allow us to match our earlier “Bottom- to-the- Top” run with the chance to try a “Coast-to- Coast” east-to-west dash, leaving from Sydney and finishing in Perth in the same wonderful Shitbox.
Apart from the fun and meeting up with other crazies on the rally, we also want to help raise funds for the Cancer Council to allow them to provide vital funds for research into Cancer. The Shitbox Rally is the largest Community lead fundraiser for the Council. Now in its 14th year it has raised over $40,000,000. The target for the Autumn 2024 Rally is set at over $2,000,000.
Our target is to contribute at least $5,000 to that goal. We greatly appreciate any contribution you can make to help reach those targets.
You can 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:
