Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2021 Autumn!! 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. 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 2021 Autumn rally target set at $2,000,000 plus.
These 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.

Here's what I'm doing …

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.

We are in! Found out today that we have made it into the 2021 May rally. To say we are excited would be an understatement.

On a personal note this was the same day I found out a very close friend has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. He is extremely positive and the prognosis is good so I am sure he will get through this.

Yesterday my Dad had his latest results back and the non Hodgkin lymphoma has grown in size and will have to be reassessed at Christmas to decide if they will start treatment.

And this is the year I lost a very special colleague to an aggressive brain tumour.

I am sure I am not alone in being able to tell these stories, and sadly these are only the stories from this year.

Now to ask all my friends and colleagues to help me remember those lost and help those battling by raising money to help fight the disease that comes in many forms - cancer.

We have our shitbox! A 2002 Holden Rodeo twin cab. It has over 350000km of experience and needs a bit of TLC. The good news is co-driver Daryl is confident that he can take care of all the servicing. I just need to source some used tyres with a bit more tread than the slicks that it came with. Will keep you all updated....

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.

Almost $24 million 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.
