We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2020 Autumn, which will be our 5th consecutive rally. This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Alice Springs to Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria.
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 Autumn rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. Our generous supporters, donors, and sponsors have contributed nearly $74,000 between the 2016-2018 BATVAN and 2019 BATBOX team efforts.
The funds raised 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 is greatly appreciated! It enables incredible people to continue their critical research work which can unlock breakthrough cures, improve treatments and ultimately save lives. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below. Also follow us on Facebook.
Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, on a 7 day drive across Australia 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 route has been announced for the 2020 Shitbox Rally|Autumn and looks a cracker at just under 4000km with a 50/50 split of sealed and unsealed roads. 6 stopovers that we have never been to let alone heard of so that will be interesting!!!
Without your support of Cancer Council and the funds raised through Shitbox Rally all of this wouldn't happen. no funds raised = no rally likewise no rally = no funds raised. So we need your help to help support Cancer Council researchers.
