We are really pleased to announce that Conrad and I are taking off on a great adventure.
We're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2020 Autumn!!
Team One More Day have entered this event to support all people suffering from Cancer who live and breathe for one more day in the hope that a cure can be found.
Last week on friday 13th of March an old freind of mine that I have known for thirty years passed away at the Sands hospital in Sydney from a melanoma he was 60 years old so this year we will dedicate our partisipation in the rally to Jim Burt an old friend a good friend and someone who will surley be missed in the years to come.
The reality of cancer is that it does not discriminate weather you are young or old,male or female good or bad it causes so much pain and hardship for all concerened.
Lets go the extra mile lets put in the effort through supporting research, we help to give people hope,
Hope that a cure may be found
Hope that one day they may look beyond today into the future
A future free of the pain anxiety and stress that cancer brings with it.
We can help through supporting research raising much needed funds.
To those who don't know.
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.
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.
