Shitbox Rally Spring 2024
Our Story …

We're 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.

It's been a long time coming and now we both feel ready to share our story of losing our daughter and sister to Leukemia. Katie was 15 months old when she was diagnosed and fought bravely for five years.

Few of us are untouched by Cancer and many of you will have our own story.

So please join with us in celebrating those that we have loved and lost – and in supporting research to brighten the future.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for Cancer Council in Australia and has raised over $45,000,000 since its inception. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount.

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.

With sincere thanks, Ross and Benjamin May

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.

Wow guys - thank you. I was sad to hear you couldn't make it down recently, but hope we can catch up here or there soon. I'm in the middle of harvesting rocks for a retaining wall and was relying on Pete!. Hoping all is going well with you guys and Georgia and Max are sticking to the mantra of best good - but not excellent (although I think they may be leaning to the later). Much love, Ross and Ben

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.
