Hi, Dyl & Jay here, and we are bloody stoked to announce that we're taking part in the Shitbox Rally in May 2020!
This year we will be adventuring with our trusty shitbox from Alice Springs to the Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria all in the name of charity!
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and since beginning 10 years ago has raised over $20 Million for Cancer Council. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 - these funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.
Unfortunately cancer has left its mark on both of our lives and we are doing this in memory of some pretty amazing people that were taken from us way to soon.
We will be regularly updating our progress via this page, the blog and through socials - the fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated!
If you are a business who would like to get on board and sponsor our team (slap your logos on our Shitbox Rally car, website & other awesome stuff) please get in touch!
Cheers & beers... Dyl & Jay
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.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Shitbox Rally Autumn has been postponed until May 2021. Our we give page remains open and we now have a new target of 8k to hit before May 2021. Thank you all for your support thus far. On the plus side it gives us another year to decorate Chooky!
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:
