We are doing this for the challenge and fun.
Sadly everyone seems to have a cancer story and David's story started when he was just 11, when his mother passed away from breast cancer at 37. David's father also passed away from cancer at the age of 52 and Sadly together they lost thier matron of honour at the age of 42 from bowel cancer.
Romy has her own cancer story having survived breast cancer, and is now 5 years cancer free. Romy's father has had his own cancer battle and is now also cancer free. 3 years ago Romy nursed her beloved Nàna who passed away from cancer.
We hope that by doing the Shitbox Rally it can help someone's else's cancer story have a happy ending or at least be more comfortable.
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.
Almost $24 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
