There has been a slight change to the team this year with Scott and Craig (Crackers) taking on the Shitbox Rally 2021. Scott and previously done two Mysterybox Rallies with his partner Kierra. But Kierra has stepped aside and is letting her dad Crackers go on this adventure. This year, we are driving our car from Mackay to Darwin.
Raising money for the Cancer Council is an honour that we both strive to do our best. But we also have the passion and drive to raise awareness for a cause that is close to our hearts and where our team name comes from The Unicorn Foundation. This foundation works with patients and families that are touched by a rare cancer Neuroendocrine Tumors that are a slow growing tumor that attacks the endocrine system. We unfortunately lost Scott’s mother to this horrible disease two years ago just before we left to go on the rally. So here we are back again and these two crazy unicorns will be ready for another adventure, with more additions to the car!
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.

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:
