We are really pleased to announce Gardner Construction are proud to be sponsoring Matt & Owen to take part in this years Shitbox Rally 2021 Spring!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Mackay to Darwin.
To make things a little more interesting i'm going to run a 100km ultra marathon in the Lakes 100 which is on the NSW mid north coast on 3rd July all to raise as much money as possible prior to the rally.
I will run over 1000kms in training which includes 7 full marathons prior to running the 100km ultra run. I've never run this far before but my intention is to finish this race and raise as much money for a great cause.
We would love you to support us with the run and the Shitbox Rally.
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.
Matt & Owen
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:
