Hi Shitbox Supporters...
It's that time again that we head off to the great unknowns in our crappy cars to have the time of our lives and also to raise funds for a wonderful cause.
Last times Shitbox (Toyota Seca) was way too reliable so we have gone to the bottom of the barrel this year and got a TRUE shitbox... Mitsubishi Magna. We will be running a sweep on how many days till she breaks down!
We were pulled by the Police over within 5 mins of owning the old girls so there will be certainly be more stories to come.
Our team name pays homage to a relative who passed away way before his time was due at 30 from esophageal cancer.
As the saying goes "only the good die young" so my ancient co-pilot Ross Carrington and myself are destined to be here for a long time.
On a serious note - these funds go to the 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.
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:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
