Whether it’s your Dad, your Nan, your mate, your mate’s Mum, your work colleague or a mate you went to school with, we have all had our lives touched in some way by the big ‘C’, cancer.
We are both extremely proud to support the Cancer Council by taking part on the Shitbox Rally Spring 2024!The 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. The fundraising is the hard part, so ANY donation you can give is greatly appreciated.
Follow our progress via this page and the blog post below as we set out in our bomb of a car. We will be trekking along the backroads of Australia, from gold country in Bendigo through to coal country in Townsville.
There will be tears and laughter as we pretend to know the first things about sleeping in a swag, and prove that our Engineering degrees provide us with exactly ZERO mechanical know-how!
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.
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:
