Shitbox Rally Autumn 2024
Our Story …

Let’s hear it for the girls!

My mum Aileen is possibly the most selfless person you will ever meet. There is nothing more important to her than her family and she is absolutely in her element when we are all together.

Mum was my strongest supporter when I fought breast cancer five years ago (Omg! It’s really been five whole years!!!) and was often by chemo buddy during treatment.

Unfortunately our family is no stranger to cancer. Mum’s dad and my grandfather Peter, died of cancer at just 38. His death really has shaped mum’s life.

We don’t want other families to endure what we have had too.

That’s why Mum and I are braving the shitbox rally for a second straight year, this time driving from Adelaide to Perth in a car worth no more than $1,500.

I suspect it will be the greatest test of our relationship, with me behind the wheel and mum as my “expert” map reader and snack distributor.

We have no sense of direction, we know nothing about cars and can’t change a tyre to save ourselves. It’ll be fun!

Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000.

This is where I’m hoping you can help.

A donation of ANY amount will help us reach our goal!

I know household budgets are tight and I know this isn’t a great time, but any help is greatly appreciated. Plus you can claim it on tax!

So where does the money go?

The Box Rallies has donated more than $35M to the Cancer Council in the last 13 years, through rally events just like this, supporting the top research projects into cancer research that miss out on funding through the federal govt. It’s a shocking statistic but one in two of us will get cancer by the age of 85. I was 36. But that’s all behind me and this rally is about raising money so that in the future cancer won’t be the dirty “C” word we fear.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

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.

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.
