Hi there, we are Lora and Wojtek - Team Krasnoludeks - which means ‘’tiny gnomes’’ in traditional Polish folklore.
We are stoked to announce that we're taking part in this year's Shitbox Rally from the 10th to the 16th of October! The rally is a Mad Max-style car race where we source a "Shitbox" car for less than $1,000 AUD and drive it 3,300 km across the Australian outback from Mackay to Darwin.
This year we lost Wojtek’s amazing mother Barabara to cancer and we would like to dedicate the race and the experience to her memory by raising funds for the Cancer Council.
We need to raise a minimum of $5,000 so we will definitely be spamming you over the upcoming months, so donate today and get it over with!
To thank each and every one of you, we will be spray painting your name on our shit box car - let’s see how many names we can fit on it!
Please excuse us in advance and be prepared :)

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 $24 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
