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.
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.
This years rally is in honor of my Dad and his battle with cancer.
What started out as a small melanoma on his hand which turned into a journey of more and more challenges and stages to fight.
The cancer spread to his lymph nodes, then the bladder, his muscles and eventually his bones.
the money we raise here does go to researchers who are making advances in fighting this terrible disease.
they are finding earlier detection methods, better and more affordable treatments and also found some cures for a few strains of it.
we are a part of that for the fundraising and your generosity given.
So THANK YOU all for supporting me on this years rally.
Love you Dad, you will enjoy this rally with me & Sammie.
Did the CEO of the Cancer Council say CURES are coming to certain strains of Cancer in the next few years.
Watch and see the difference your donations are making to the world.
I was fortunate enough to have him and his brother in my buddy group on the 10th anniversary Rally from Perth to Sydney via Uluru.
If you can spare a few dollars it all counts.
