Our Story …

Pat and Sam are two friends living in Melbourne who're joining the Shitbox Rally 2020 Spring event to raise money for the Cancer Council. The event will see us driving a sub $1000, 2wd vehicle over 3000km from Mackay to Darwin over a challenging outback route.

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. We'd like to ask for your support in form of a donation, or in purchasing some sponsorship real estate on our noble steed.

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. Please make sure to follow our progress via 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 Vehicle

We have obtained a 1995 Nissan Micra K11 - Powered by the mighty 74 horsepower CG13DE engine. The CG series engine is also commonly found in forklifts, hopefully this means it's up to the task of crossing the outback.

There's a bit of prep work to do to get the car RWC and rally ready, but at a purchase cost of $300 that's not too much of a surprise. The first step is getting all 4 cylinders consistently running and I'm sure there will plenty more challenges uncovered after that.

We'd like to give a huge thanks to everyone who has contributed to our fundraising so far and look forward to bringing you more updates as preparation of the car continues.

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.
