This year, Dad and I are taking part in Shitbox Rally 2020 Spring where we’ll be driving from Mackay to Darwin on the bumpiest and dustiest roads known to man, in the worst cars known to man!
As someone who has spent a lot of time around cancer patients in the last few years, I can say with confidence that I have never met a group of people who are kinder, more compassionate, or more deserving of your donations. We have joined the rally this year not only in honour of the people and family members we know who have battled cancer, but also for everyone else who will benefit from the money that Shitbox Rally raises and the work that the Cancer Council does.
Any contribution that you can make will be greatly appreciated. The funds we raise will go to Cancer Council Australia to provide support for all their activities and the work they do on behalf of cancer patients.
We are extremely thankful to those who are willing to put up their hard-earned cash for such a worthy cause.
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.
