We're back taking part in the Autumn Shitbox Rally 2021. We were a last minute NO-Show for the 2019 Spring rally due to, an agressive Cance in the family and we were again ready to go for the Autumn 2020 rally when Covid19 took us out again !
So.........for another shot to honour Jude, here we go for Autumn 2021; travelling 4,150 km from Gold Coast to Alice Springs (a Covid19 compliance change for half the entrants !) via the Gulf of Carpentaria. And that does not count the 1,697km to get from Melbourne to the Gold Coast start.
We are driving a 1994 306 Peugeot that has been put back together and is ready for the task, ......we hope!
We had already raised $11,750 before being forced to abandon the last rally and are looking to add to that for this Aurumn 2021 event.
Shitbox Rallies have delivered over $25million to the Cancer Council over the last 11 years. The 2021 Autumn rally target was set at $2,400,000+, with >$2,300,000 already in the bag. These funds will go to the Cancer Council and we are pleased to be again doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Ray & Dale
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.
Almost $24 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
