Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally Autumn 2024! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Adelaide to Perth.

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.

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.

Hi Ciaram. Thank you so much for your kind donation to what is a fantastic cause. We have all been affected in some way by cancer and these funds go to the Cancer Council SA to research ways of treating and hopefully curing the many types of cancers that plague humanity. Thank you again and please follow us on Facebook to see how we are going on the rally which starts in April. This year the rally goes from Adelaide to Perth via Ayer's Rock (Uluru) so it should be both interesting and challenging at the same time especially given the age of the vehicles involved.

Hi Looi and Doris. Thankyou so much for your kind donation. This is a really great cause and your donation goes towards cancer research to find treatments and cures for the many types of cancer that affect humanity. Your donation is truly appreciated. Overall the Shitbox rallies have raised over $47M! Our rally last year that went from Newcastle to Townsville via Betoota raised over $2M and we are on the way to do that again. Shitbox Rallies are the largest donors to the Cancel Council and my son Tim and I are proud to be a part of that. It is also great fun for the week of the rally mixing with people who are all dedicated to raising funds for the caner Council. We get to meet some fantastic people as well as seeing parts of Australia we wouldn't normally get to and having fun doing it. Thanks again and please stay safe. Regards Chris & Tim

G'Day Graeme. mate thank you so much for your kind donation. Rest assured it is absolutely going to a great cause. The Cancer Council does such a great job and they are getting real results. Tim and I chose Shitbox Rallies because nearly all of it actually goes to where it should. There is a relatively small amount that goes to administer the rallies and that of course has to happen. It is all transparent and can be read on the Rally web pages. The Variety Club bash for example only contributes 46% of what it collects to Variety! That we thought was disgusting and believe me there are others out there much worse than that! Shitbox Rallies average a bit over $2M collected for each rally which is amazing. We are proud to support this cause and again thank you for your support. Hope you are travelling OK mate and hope to catch up again in the not too distant future. Take care and Up The Old Red Rooster!!

Thank you so much Tanya for your support and very generous donation to what we believe is a really great cause. As we discussed cancer is something that affects every one of us in one way or another and the research carried out by the Cancer Council is vital to find treatments and cures for the wide variety of cancers that plague our families and communities. Great to hear you are following us on Facebook and hopefully we will see you guys at the Exchange Hotel in Gawler on Sunday between 3:00 and 6:00 pm to listen to some great music and support the cause. Children are most welcome and we will have a raffle or two as well. The band is Urban Cover and I started this band years ago but retired from it to travel and then Covid hit. Anyway I might just get up and do a song myself you never know. Hope you can make it. Thanks again. Kindest Regards Chris & Tim

Hi Greg, Thank you so much for your generous donation and support to what really is a great cause. Cancer is something that affects all of us in one way or another and the more research that is done the more treatments and cures that can be discovered. Follow us on Facebook at The Rising Sons Do Shitbox and if you are free at 3:00pm on Sunday drop down to the Exchange Hotel in Gawler for some great live music and a small fundraiser (raffles etc) that we are running. The hotel has donated a $100 voucher for the raffle which was great of them. Thanks again and hope to catch up. Kind Regards Chris & Tim

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.
