Our Story …

Getting accepted to take part in Shitbox Rally Spring 2024 gave Ben and I big enough smiles, but the support so far from many has taken the smiles to another level - thank you all. Driving our shitbox from Bendigo to Townsville will be so much more enjoyable having so many following our journey and supporting us.


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.


Cheers - Rob and Ben

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>Hi again all. Well, the hectic Christmas and New Year period is done, and a new year begins. Ben and I spent time down at our Phillip Island happy places putting our plan together. For now we'll be focusing on the fundraising we need to do to be able to join the rally - need to raise a minimum of $5,000. Our eyes are out looking at potential cars but we have some time for that. The fundraising focus will be piece of mind once achieved. I've just hit social media with all everyone needs to know. If neither Ben or I are in your social media network, give us a shout out. You can contact me on 0400 568 664.</p><p></p><p>Thanks for reading all.</p>

<p>Greetings all. Thanks again for all the support so far. We've just booked our epic trivia night in for Sat 27th July (in Mitcham), our final fundraising effort. Will post details soon. Hope to have our car June or July - finding something worth no more than $1,500 (including road worthy requirements) is our next big challenge. Take care all.</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.
