Our Story …

Simon and Mark - team Chuggabug - are taking part in the Shitbox Rally 2020 Spring. For those of you that haven't heard of it, this means driving a piece of crap car worth less than 1,000 dollars (which is sod-all for a car in Australia) through the Queensland and NT outback from Mackay to Darwin. We're doing this over six days in October.

We only have a few months to whip our old Holden Shitbox into shape for this challenge.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year.

Each of the 250 teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount, with this year's target set at $2,000,000 plus.

That's 8 large a team!

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 would be really cool.


You can follow our progress on 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, over a 7 day across Australia endeavour 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.

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.

Almost $20 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.
