I am pleased to say that a good friend of Andrew and myself Noel will be joining me in the team of Andys Army (in memory of my wonderful husband and friend) We are taking part in the Shitbox Rally 2021 Autumn again this year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Alice Springs to Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria. Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 12th year.. Funds go to the 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. Thanks Guys, we appreciate all your support.
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.
Once again we are again on our quest to raise funds for the Cancer Council and have a great time doing so. Getting excited for the journey so I'm back into the organising. Stay tuned .
