Our Story …

We’re back!!

After a successful Shitbox Spring Rally last year from Melbourne to Townsville, we have signed up for the Mackay to Darwin jaunt. Once again our mighty 1999 Toyota Corolla Shitbox will hit the road after its successful “Bottom-to –the Top” run from Wilsons Promontory to Cape York (Bass Strait to Torres Strait) that included the Melbourne to Townsville rally. After that shakedown run, we reckon we’re up for joining the other 249 cars in tackling whatever Mackay to Darwin can throw at us.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year. All teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 before they start, but last year through the generosity of our supporters, Norfolk & Chance raised double that at $10,000. We are aiming for a similar amount this year to help the rally reach its 2020 Spring rally target of $2 million plus.

These funds will go to the Cancer Council to support further research into the causes and prevention of cancer. 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 or on The Facebooks at:

Here's what I'm doing …

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.

Many thanks, Angela. You've been very generous. It truly is a shame that we won't have any Pastafarian Pirates on the trip. I think Colin's skin would glisten in a tropical sunset. Cheers, Jane & Derry

Thanks Mick & Deb for your generous donation. Shame you won't be with us. We will have a brand new buddy group who will need to understand morning tea and we could do with your help. Cheers, Derry & Jane

Here's to what we're sure will be more than Norfolk (&) Chance, seeing you did so well last time! And we're hoping that the rally itself will also have a much greater chance of being run, whenever that might be. Plus the car needs to make it all the way to Perth so you're able to finally visit as all. Love From Fergus, Lindsay, Fraser and Murphy

Fergus, Lindsay, Fraser & Murphy. Thanks so much for your out-of-the-blue donation. Very generous indeed. Gives us inspiration to carry on and make sure the Shitbox is in fine fettle following frustrating failures to follow fantastic feats fixed for former time frames. The plan is now to head west and see where we finish. Maybe secret entries into WA under the cover of dust? Love M&D

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.

Over $26 million 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.
