Update - Due to Covid19, the original start date of May 2020 has been postponed to 23/05/21. Our new donation targets are now 23/04/20 = $4k, 23/5/20 = $5k and 23/05/21 = $8k.
I am stoked to announce that my good mate Adam and I have been selected to participate in an epic rally fundraising for cancer research, Shitbox Rally 2020 for Cancer Council.
The catch is that to be able to participate, we need to raise a minimum of $8K
The Shitbox Rally is a challenge where cars must be purchased for less than $1,000 including repairs and participants (250 teams!) drive their Shitbox's from point A to point B under its own propulsion.
Our challenge is to drive, push or carry our Shitbox Falcon from Perth to Alice Springs, 2,500km's via the Great Central Rd. From there we will take part in the 4,000km Shitbox Rally 2020, Alice Springs to the Gold Coast via the North of QLD. A total of 6,500 km's on some of the worst roads in Aust!
Most people have been touched by cancer in some way and 1 in 2 will receive a cancer diagnosis by the age of 85.
Both Adam and I lost our mums too early to cancer, so we feel this is an epic way to honour their memory and raise money for cancer research by joining in the Shitbox Rally. (Also a good reason for a boys road trip! don't tell our missises!)
This rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year. Fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated and a tax deduction. Tax receipt will be emailed through. There is also an option for sponsors to get your name on the car.
Make sure you watch the video to see what the trip is about:)
Cheers Dan & Adam.

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:
