Eric and Matt are two well known telco industry veterans, (well some are older than others), but we both carry the scars.
For better or worse, richer or poorer, we’ve entered the October 2020 Spring edition of the Shitbox Rally.
We’ve united for the Cancer Council of Australia to give back to the community. We’re tapping into all our communications and technology industry peers to dig deep and support us in our endeavors to raise funds for the Cancer Council.

Old cars are our passion and we’ve chosen a mighty $400 AE92 Toyota Corolla to get us from Mackay in FNQ to Darwin NT (via the Gulf of Carpentaria). The old car also has to get from Melbourne to Mackay to start and then from Darwin to Melbourne. That’s an awesome road trip, folks.
This is our first rally, our team name is Down & Dirty (we are getting Down - and we will end up Dirty), and we’re aiming to nail it first go.
Please support us in our fundraising efforts and help us smash that goal!

Corporate sponsorships are also available, and more than welcome to assist us to reach our goal.
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:
