We are pumped 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.
Mark and I love a project that is outside of our business, we also love a fundraiser its been something that we have regularly done in the last 10 years of our business journey together.
This year we thought with our love of old cars why not bring them together and make it a little fun along the way.
Mark lost his mum to Cancer at the age of 21, it was a devastating lost to the whole family especially her 4 children who to this day miss her beyond words. So Gladys Schutz this one is for you.
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:
