Nathan Moore and Tom Hampton are going on a journey across the country in a VP Commodore that does not have aircon or many of the other mod cons. The official event(The Shit Box Rally) starts at Alice Springs and will be traveling to the Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria. The unofficial rally starts from Perth to Alice Springs this is to raise money to support Cancer Research this event is the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Council.
The rally didn't take place last year but the funds did get allocated for the various research grants with the rally not going ahead we have been given a target of $3000 for the year to raise to gain entry into the rally this would bring the total to $8000 including last years fundraising.
Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, 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.
