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.

Thanks so much Clarkies! This wonder of Scandinavian engineering (in all it's clapped out glory) should be finished well before the start of the rally, and I will therefore be sure to bring it over to take you all for a spin! It even has a factory installed pop out booster seat ready for the littlest Clarkie! Gotta love those swedes! Cheers Ben

Thank you so much Joe. You're a dead set legend! Can't wait to hit the dirt again with you blokes in 2021. Make sure you boys look us up for your next fundraiser. We certainly have space in the cabinet for another 'genuine' Bodgey Brothers stubby holder (the original and the best - beware of cheap imitations ...). Cheers Ben and Chris

Your in danger of becoming a good man Cliffo! Thanks so much for chipping in the big ones champ, we sincerely appreciate it. I reckon we should catch up sometime in the next year or so. Come to think of it, the drive to the start line in Alice goes right past Rads (unless you know a good car freighting outfit :P). Let's lock in a date for May 2021. Say hi to Melissa and the boys for us. Take it easy bloke. Cheers Ben & Chris

Your commitment and generosity to this cause always goes above and beyond. We are looking forward to seeing the Volvo uncovered and brought to life for next year's challenge!

There are good people, there are awesome people, and then there are the Paxton's. A truly humbling donation from a wonderful family of humans (and a gorgeous, fluffy puppy!). Thank you so much for your perennial support. Fear not, the covers will be taken of mighty Volvo before you know it, allowing play to recommence! Cheers Ben and Chris

Thank you so much for your support for the cause Auntie Ronda (year, after year, after year!). We are gutted that the rally has been postponed for 12 months, but are absolutely stoked that with everything as crazy as it is at the moment, the support from our family and friends is unwavering. Once this car is fully prepared, get your racing suit out of the closet, I'm taking you for a spin! Cheers Ben

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's one of the loveliest people on the plant ... Super Juzzy! Your generosity knows no bounds Justine. Thank you so much for your endless support (and not just for the rally). I'm looking forward to returning the favour for your next (inevitably non-motorised) adventure challenge that you sign up for. Please make sure you send the details through! Cheers Ben

I'm calling for a Mole Company 9 muster post Kung-Flu.
7 months ago
[Apply David Attenborough voice over] Although part of the Talpidae family, the shitboxa mole bares no resemblance, nor shares a single behavioural trait of its more commonly known insectivorous subterranean cousins. It remains solitary for much of the year, only coming together in late-May and mid-October for a 7 day migration across the Australian continent. The trek is unstoppable, with those unable to continue being assisted by others to ensure all complete the 3,500-4,000km journey. Comprising a variety of subspecies, including Molus newcastlium, Molus australis and Molus afrikanus, newly forged friend groups exist for life, and while gatherings are often irregularly held, the fun and frivolity displayed by Shitboxa moles at such moments is unparalleled in the animal world." You're a bloody legend Macca. We'll ensure that all of Company 9 gets an invite. Cheers Ben and Chris

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.
