Our Story …

πŸš— Rev Up for a Cause: Join Our Journey in Shitbox Rally Spring 2024! 🌟

We embark on this Shitbox Rally Spring 2024 journey not just as a team, but as a group bound by personal stories that illuminate the impact of cancer on our lives.

In 2002, Adam's brother faced a daunting battle against a brain tumor. Despite the relentless fight involving chemotherapy and surgery, he left us exactly two years later, leaving behind a wife and two young children. His wife, who later remarried, is now navigating the challenges of another brain tumor diagnosis in 2022. The contrast between the treatments he received and the advancements today is nothing short of remarkable β€” a testament to the progress we've made.

In 2018, a dear childhood friend of Adam's succumbed to melanoma at the age of 40. This tragic loss prompted him to prioritize his health. Following a checkup, a melanoma was detected, leading Adam to participate in the Australian Centre of Excellence in Melanoma Imaging & Diagnosis (ACEMID) trial.

As we rally for a cancer-free future, Adam's father is concluding his last treatment for lymphoma. The resilience of our loved ones and the transformative power of research have brought us to this point.

It is through research that groundbreaking treatments and surgeries have become a reality. Today, our journey with Shitbox Rally is not just a drive; it's a commitment to fund the research that can change lives. The Australian Cancer Council, through initiatives like Shitbox Rally, plays a vital role in supporting this research.

This is more than a rally; it's a dedication to those we've lost, a salute to survivors, and a promise for a future where families won't endure the pain we've faced. Research needs funding, and your support in our Shitbox Rally Spring 2024 journey is a direct investment in life-changing breakthroughs.

🌈 Join us on the road to a cancer-free future! Your support matters. 🌈

Thank you for standing with us in this meaningful journey against cancer.

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 β€œwe 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.
