So, this year, my Dad(Shane Aka:Cugs) and myself(Kerryn aka:Bugs) are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in the Spring shitbox rally 2020. We are excited to be able to take part in such a wonderful cause. Like so many others, we have also been directly and indirectly affected by cancer. We are doing the race, this year, in memory of my Pop( My Dads’ dad) and other family members that have passed or that are still battling cancer. Funds raised go to the Cancer Council. We are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any amount that you can give is greatly appreciated.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia. It 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.
Please make sure to follow our journey.
We’ll be having some fundraising events, so make sure you come say hi and share a story or two with us.
We look forward to meeting everyone and making some new friends along the way on this journey.
Thanks Cugs & Bugs
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.
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:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
