Everyone has been or will be touched by cancer at least once in their lives, either personally or through someone they love. Ali and Pete have been - both of their fathers died from cancer and Ali is a cancer survivor - and that’s why they decided to enter the autumn Shitbox Rally again for 2021 and help raise money for the Cancer Council. The Cancer Council is the nation’s peak non-government cancer control organisation and advises the Australian Government and other agencies on practices and policies to help prevent, detect and treat cancer. The Shitbox Rally along with its baby brother Mystery Box Rally have raised $24 million for the Cancer Council over the last 11 years. The two rallies are the Cancer Council's biggest single fundraiser. You can help Ali and Pete meet their fundraising target and help in the fight against cancer by giving whatever you can. Remember donations greater than $2 are tax deductible. The more people that know about cancer, the work of the Cancer Council and the part Box Rallies plays in the fight against cancer, the greater the impact so please spread the word among your family, friends and work colleagues by liking us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/BeardiesBucket) and sharing our page.

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.
Almost $24 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
