Our Story …

We are Greg and Elyse, come join us on our adrenaline-fueled journey through rugged terrain and heartwarming camaraderie in the Shitbox Rally, where we will be driving our shitbox from Bendigo to Townsville.


Battling dust storms and rough roads, this dynamic duo is not just driving for the thrill but steering towards a greater cause. With every bump and turn, we're raising vital funds for the Cancer Council, igniting hope and support for those fighting the toughest battle of all. Together, we're driving towards a future where cancer is conquered, one rally at a time. Strap in for an unforgettable ride with us, as we rev up our engines and drive for a world without cancer.

These funds go to 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.


We have all been touched in one way or another by losing someone dear to us or knowing someone still fighting their battle. Any amount of money or awareness we raise will be one step closer.

Here's what I'm doing …

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,500, 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 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.

$46 million over the past 15 years 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.
