Two mates since primary school are setting off in a national lampoons style adventure across half this great country in the name of competition and charity.
The race, “The Shitbox Rally”, can only be likened to the cannonball run movie (circa 1981). It will see these two dads park their respective married with children duties for 6 days to drive their shitbox from Alice Springs to Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria.
Driving a car worth less than $1,000 they will navigate their hunk of metal 3,962km across terrain not suitable for most modern cars. There will be plenty of social media entertainment created for all those supporters of this great cause, so please donate generously in the name of competition and charity!
The Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia. Participation requires all teams raise a minimum of $8,000 so all donations are greatly appreciated and will help the ongoing cause immensely.
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.
The 2020 Autumn rally has been postponed now to May 2021 due to COVID.
Donations for the charity have been raised to $8,000 per team so any additional help to achieve our team target would be outstanding. Appreciate everyone’s support so far.
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:
