We are team Dusty Bottoms from Adelaide South Australia
Our team consists of Wayne Knowles & Shannon Greenwood.
We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2020 Autumn!!
This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Alice Springs to Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria.
Finally we have purchased our shitbox! Now looking forward to restoring our Honda Civic Ek1, giving it a new lease of life for such a great cause!
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year.
We as a team cannot wait to get stuck into raising money for a charity that is very close to our hearts - but also many others a like that has, or knows someone going through, or had cancer.
As we know Cancer continues to have its hold on so many lives. The impact becomes greater when it has targeted the ones you love most. For Wayne and his family - this has become the reality whilst his dad, Dave, is currently battling terminal cancer.
So Dad we are doing this race for you ... and all our proceeds will be going to the Cancer Council.
Seeing the affect cancer can have, Wayne and Shannon are extremely proud to be doing their part to support such a worthy charity.
The fundraising is actually 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 posts below.
Thank you for being apart of this journey with us!!!
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:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
