Shitbox Rally Spring 2024
Our Story …

Two Dads, One Rusty Ride, and a Big Mission!

G'day legends!

We're Don and Jono, two mates ready to trade in our nappies for a rusty chariot and embark on the Shitbox Rally Spring 2024!

Yep, you heard that right. We're throwing ourselves, and our trusty "shitbox" into the dirt for a cause close to our hearts: FIGHTING CANCER.

This disease has hit us all, from family to mates on the footy field. It's time to tackle it head-on, and what better way than with a hilarious road trip across Australia in a car that wouldn't know a tune-up if it hit it in the muffler?

The Shitbox Rally is all about raising funds for the Cancer Council, and we're aiming to be part of the $2 million+ goal for this Spring rally.

Every dollar count, and your donation, no matter the size, will be our fuel to the finish line.

Why are we doing this?

Well, besides the epic adventure and questionable fashion choices (think high-vis vests and budgy smugglers), it's about making a difference. We want to see a future where cancer doesn't steal loved ones, doesn't disrupt lives, and doesn't leave anyone feeling alone.

So, if you're looking to support a good cause while being entertained by our questionable driving skills and questionable jokes, please consider donating! We'll keep you updated on our journey through this page, so you can witness the "Dadventurers Down Under" unfold in all its glory (and maybe a little bit of dust).

Thanks, legends!

Jono & Don

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.
