Hi Everyone, Brendan Jones & Tim Johnson here!
We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in The Shitbox Rally 2020 Autumn!!
This year, all the teams are driving their Shitboxes from Alice Springs to The Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria in 7 days! River crossings included!
Being from Tassie, we have to first GET to Alice Springs in the Shitbox & leave our families for a little bit longer but The Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year. So a very worthy cause in our books!
Part of the participation for the Rally 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. We would love to be able to contribute $15,000 to that total!
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 Facebook!

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.
We now have an email address!
If you donate $20 or more through our WeGive Page for Cancer Council, send us through an email with a photo or message for a loved one that has been effected by Cancer & we will get it printed into a sticker to go on the car.
Will be printed in standard 6x4 & stuck to the car for the rally.
We think this is a small way to show that our loved ones may be gone but are never forgotten.
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.
