Our Story …

Yes, you heard it correctly, the two Ben’s of Beecroft (Hopkins and Groth) will soon be heading out on the crazy adventure which is the Shitbox Rally. In our trusty 1997 Volvo 850, we will embark from the Gold Coast on 5 June, and arrive in Alice Springs via the Gulf of Carpentaria 7 days later (hopefully in the same car!).

For the uninitiated, the Shitbox Rally is in its 12th year, and requires participants driving a car worth no more than $1,000 approximately 4,000 kms across the outback (ie mostly on dirt!), all the name of raising funds for the Cancer Council.

We are dedicating our entry to Steve Garrigan (Ben Hopkin’s Best Mate and Groomsman), who was tragically taken by cancer only 12 months ago. We are hoping to raise $15,000 to support vital research to kill off all forms of this insidious disease. We would sincerely love your help in achieving this dream. Any donation you can spare helps the Cancer Council tackle this blight on society. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

Cheers Ben and Ben.

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.

I'm calling for a Mole Company 9 muster post Kung-Flu.
1 year 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

Leo Taylor gave $50.00.
Ben (I don't know which one sorry) - you might remember lending me a hand me when my Mitsi Challenger broke down off the Epping Road a couple of weeks back. The car never made it sadly (timing belt failure, busted valves), but I'm super grateful you stopped by to help. Donation to a great cause is the least I can do to say thanks. All the best!
2 weeks ago
Thank you so much Leo!! You seriously didn’t have to do that, but Ben, myself and the Cancer Council are sincerely grateful for your generous donation. I’m always happy to try and help out someone who’s broken down. I’m sorry to hear that the Mitsi was terminal. A snapped timing belt in an interference engine is never going to end well 🙁 It certainly explains why she didn’t want to start when we tried to turn her over! The mighty Volvo is steadily getting ready for the rally which is only a month away. It has thrown us a bit of a curve ball in the last week with the check engine light coming on, which is the next thing to fix (after finding out what’s caused it!) 😬 If you want to check out our ongoing shenanigans, we will be posting regular updates at https://m.facebook.com/Shitbox-Rally-2021-Healing-Hands-193822418842256/ Thanks again for your awesome support.

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.
