We are pleased that this year we have been accepted into Shitbox Rally 2021 Autumn. This year the Rally has had to adapt to the various state and territory Covid 19 restrictions and this has resulted in the Rally effectively being split in two. We are in the first half, driving from Alice Springs to the Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria. The second half will drive the return journey.
I'm sure that everyone has either been touched by cancer in their lives or know of someone that has been (our family certainly have) and that you understand what a vital role research plays in the treatment and the search for a cure, whatever form of the disease. The Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 12th year and we are really please to be a part of their journey.
As with any charity the fundraising is the hardest part and with all funds raised going to the Cancer Council we ask you to please support our teams fundraising effort with any donation that you can afford.
You can follow our progress via this page anytime.
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.
