Our Story …

Everyone near and dear to us, know the battle we have fought over the last 10 years with Shannons cancer journey. We still arent out of the woods yet but are in a much better place then 10 years ago. This February marks 5 years without treatment for Shannon, a place that seemed so far away not that long ago and fingers crossed we continue this way! We want to give back to the cancer council and hopefully help someone else get to this point as well.


We currently have some very close and loved friends fighting similar battles and we would love to be able do something in honour of them as well.


If you can spare it please get onboard and help us help others! Also looking for awesome sponsors!


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, seems like it was meant to be!


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 have to 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.


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.

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.

Hey guys you are amazing! We cant thank you enough for that, we are lost for words and so appreciative! We havent decided on the car yet, we are hoping to get an old station wagon or van. The older the better so we can put Adams mechanical skills to the test! The last thing we want is to make it easy on ourselves...

<p>Okay, we are narrowing down the "shitbox" search. Here are a few options we are looking at, feel free to canvas your friends to see if they might have anything in the back yard suitable. It needs to be under a $1000 and two wheel drive. My favourite is the white XE ford ute.</p>

<p>In preperation for the resumption of the shitbox rally we are starting up a facebook page to help with fundraising. It has became almost impossible for people to donate in the current environment we are living in. Team Rawburns will be offering heavily discounted services in the form of rural services, mowing, home improvements, basic mechanical services and welding. We will be offering the above for a donation to our cause. If you know anyone who might be looking for these service please let them know. </p>

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.
