Our Story …

This October we are taking part in the Shitbox Rally and along with other teams we will be driving our Shitbox from Mackay to Darwin. The Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year. To date the Shitbox Rallies have donated over 20 million dollars to the Cancer Council.


The Shitbox Rally is not a race, rather a challenge to achieve the unthinkable… To drive a car worth just $1,000 some 3000kms across Australia via some of its most formidable roads, all in the name of charity.


Both of us have had a parent die from cancer as well as other family members, friends and friends kids.


We are doing the Shitbox Rally to raise money for cancer research, to honour our parents and all of the people we know who have died from cancer and also to those who have survived.


Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but we are aiming to raise $10,000 - $20,000


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.


Regards



Mark & Wayne

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.

Now the route for the rally has been published we went into Google maps to better see the route. Some of the roads were not available in street view. So even the google drivers did not want to go on them. However here is a photo of one of the "roads" we will be travelling on. Looks like we will be needing the dust masks

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 $24 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.
