We are really excited to be joining this year's rally. We have never done anything like this before and are looking forward to the challenge, adventure and meeting new people during this very testing event; basically driving a rubbish car through a hostile desert for 3500km!!!
We know several people who have battled cancer in the last few years, some have won that battle and some have lost. We really miss our friends and family who we have lost.
This is something that effects all of us.
Due to cancer research lots of improvement have been made and survival rates have much improved. However much more is needed and we are looking to raise as much money as possible to help this great cause.
Thank you so much for reading this and please donate if you can.

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, 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.
Over $26 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
