Shitbox Rally Spring 2024
Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally Spring 2024! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Bendigo to Townsville.

Di and I have come together this rally to help support this great course. We are old mates who have a great passion for all things support when it comes to cancer research, and are super excited to do our bit to help this great event.

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.

<p>A little about Di…. when working in Perth WA, I met Kathryn as she was my daughter’s day carer. &nbsp;We developed a great friendship, but eventually I moved back to QLD to be with family. We lost touch but reconnected when Kathryn contacted me that she was doing the Spring 2023 Shitbox Rally, starting in Port Douglas. She came and stayed for a week where we reconnected and i was caught up in the excitement of Kathryn and Estelle doing the Spring shitbox 2023. (Two crazy chicks) Kathryn contacted me and said she had another rally left in her! YES!! let’s do this! It will be hard cos i’m on one side of OZ and she’s on the other, but we will make this work, and have a blast!&nbsp;my mum passed in 2008 from a brain tumour, having previously survived breast cancer back in 1995. I lost one of my best friends, people often said we looked more like sisters.&nbsp;So, i’m also doing this for my Mum, she loved the countryside and always encouraged me to go out and experience as many adventures as possible!</p>

<p>A little about me...this is my 3rd Rally, and I am still super excited to be joining this great event in the support of cancer research. This year is a little different as I am now full time living on the road and a very long way from far North Qld where Di is...making the challenge all the greater to meet our Targets this year.... but I know with the support of friends and family, we will get the job done. </p><p>This year I am excited to be joined by Di, a great friend over many years. We have finally found the time in our lives to reconnect and have a go. </p><p>Please get behind us in the support of cancer research and help us any way you can.... maybe a donation, some support by purchasing tickets to our raffles, or simply sharing our page and following along with our journey. </p><p></p>

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.
