Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally Spring 2024!

We, along with other teams will be driving our shitboxes from Bendigo to Townsville, in a not so direct route - and we can't wait to see the sights!

Our team is made up of Mat (Brighton, Tas) & Tom (Cranbrook , Tas)... so you may see fundraising efforts/events in both areas - no need to worry it is one or the other of us doing our bit (hopefully with help from our friends, wink wink, nudge nudge)

Please make contact with us if you think you can help- there are various ways you can (we can be found on Facebook too, just search for our team name) - but maybe the easiest is to donate via the link - anything above $2 is tax deductible.


We, like just about everyone else in this great country have been hit by those close to us being touched by or in some cases smacked hard by cancer - Tom's partner Chelsea for example has lost both parents, her Mum (Liver Cancer) back when she was just 10yo, her Dad (Brain Cancer) a couple of years ago, and her Grandmother another six months later, after two very valiant battles with Lung Cancer.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 14th 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 Spring 2024 rally target set at $2,000,000 plus.

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.

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.
