Ant and Adrian O'Hagan have come together to form Team Shipheads. If you know us well enough, you'll know the name suits. We are participating in Shitbox Rally Spring 2021 because we hate cancer.
We recently lost Ant's mum Pauline to this bitch of a disease. She is our driving force.
So we're driving our Shitbox (worth $1,000 or less) from Mackay to Darwin, and we need your help to get us there.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia. Part of the deal is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but we want to blow that target out of the water.
So if you hate cancer, and want to beat the ship out of it like we do... then please help us out. Every donation, big or small will make a massive difference.
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:
