Our Story …

We are the dynamic mother and son duo, Dianne and Dean! We will be taking part in Shitbox Rally as Team Charlie's Chariot in Spring 2024, named in honour of our late dad and grandad. This year, the teams are driving their shitboxes from Bendigo to Townsville.

Our mission? To raise money for the largest community lead fundraiser for Cancer Council in Australia which is now in its 14th year. We must raise $5,000 minimum. Can you help us do it?


Every donation counts towards funding world-class medical research that is helping so many affected by cancer.


Donate now and be a part of this incredible journey in honour of the late great Charlie Yates! Please make sure to follow our Facebook page Charlies Chariot.

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.

$41 million over the past 13 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.
