As I’m sure many of you will already know I was supposed to be participating in the 2020 autumn Shitbox rally, COVID unfortunately meant this was postponed a year, My roommate and I will now be rallying this May! We will be embarking on an epic journey starting in Alice Springs and making our way all the way to the gold coast via some of the most unforgiving roads in Australia! All in a car I purchased for $500!
The Shitbox rally was founded over 10 years ago with the aim of raising money and awareness for cancel and supports cancer council each and every year providing millions in essential funds needed to support cancer research and support to its victims. A dear friend of mine had recently been diagnosed with cancer at only 27 years of age, Her life to say the least has been turned upside down and I have seen the impact this has had on those around her too, cancer is not something I have experienced in my life and this has been a real wake up call for me.
Being accepted to participate in the Shitbox rally is for one something I have personally wanted to do since I first heard about the rally and is an amazing chance to raise money and awareness for cancer and its treatment. If you can donate to this valuable cause I would be very grateful you can find the donation link below, we are also offering opportunities for sponsorship including sign writing on the vehicle, the rally is widely televised and media coverage is good, please let me know if you are interested!
Thank you to all of you who have already donated also, I realize you would have heard from me last year about this.
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.

Thanks to the community funds raised such as Shitbox Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.
