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.
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.
These funds 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 you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.
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.
For those that don’t know us we are Justin and Cathy McCormick. We live on the outskirts of Toowoomba QLD and are the proud parents of three adult children.
Very excited to be able to take part in the Shitbox Rally in 2020 and play our part in raising much needed funds. Unfortunately like all people Cancer has been a constant enemy throughout our lives impacting many friends and family. Most recently we have lost our Mother/Mother-in law Leonie McCormick. Mum was known as Lone to many and we have named our team Lone’s Rangers in memory of Mum.
We want this experience to be as fun and memorable not only for us but also for our sponsors and the people who contribute to our cause.
Thanks for your support.
