We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2020 Spring!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Mackay to Darwin.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year. Part of the participation is that all teams must raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2020 Spring rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. It is a great feeling to be involved in such a worthy cause. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.
We tried to wear out our ageing Falcon on the last rally, driving to Birdsville, but the car survived somehow, so we are having another shot. Lots of river crossings, it should be interesting! We are well prepared with duct tape and cable ties. It will be a heap of fun no matter what happens to our awesome car.
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:
