We are super pumped to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2020 Spring!!
We'll be driving a <$1000 shitbox sedan without AWD (but hopefully with AC) over 3,300km from Mackay to Darwin in October 2020.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year.
Cancer sucks. Both Scott and myself have lost far too many people far before their time to this bullshit disease. We're doing this drive not just to raise money, but also to celebrate the lives of everyone we've lost and every survivor still standing.
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!
For sponsorship inquiries, contact KyleH@franklinshanks.com.
Sponsorship packages are still being put together, but at a simple level, if you'd like your logo on our car and your logo on the Shitbox Rally Spring 2020 website then this falls into a sponsorship criteria. In that case, SBR creates an invoice for the donation, which must flow through them rather than the WeGive site. SBR does it this way because of ATO definitions and the legal requirements the Government has for sponsorships vs donations.
We're currently looking for companies in the following categories.
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.
