Hello Everyone - We're Jack & Amanda from the Pilbara! We are so excited and privileged to be accepted into the Shitbox Rally 2020 and to be able to join such an amazing organisation raising funds for Cancer Council Australia.
Our personal goal is to smash the target of $5000 out of the ball park, with hopes that this money will find the cure, so future families can be spared the heartache of losing their loved ones to this indiscriminate disease.
The feeling of helplessness watching those we love going through the greatest battle of their lives will be something we will never forget but being a part of this rally is our way to finally be able to honour our loved ones we have lost far too soon.
We are more than aware that times are a little tough for everyone at the moment, so any amount you could spare would be greatly appreciated, you will all be there with us in spirit and we will do you proud.
These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. 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 $2M plus.
Let the fun and games begin!
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.
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:
