Our Story …

Alastair and Geoff are in the shit......box rally!


What is the Shitbox rally?

Shitbox Rally runs twice a year, and is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council and is now in its 11th year. In 2019 the rally raised over $2,000,000, and we aiming to exceed this in 2020. We're participating in the Autumn rally in May where we'll be driving over 4,000kms (half on unsealed roads) from Alice Springs to Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria....if we make it.


What's a Shitbox?

A clapped out car worth less than $1,000. This is the rally's golden rule, otherwise what's the challenge. Oh also no 4WDs! We're yet to buy our Shitbox, but we're thinking something with style and from the 80s!


What's the ask?

Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount which we're aiming to do!

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.

We thank you for your generous contribution to our team, and this worthy cause.

Below is a video of the 2019 Autumn rally to give you a taste of the event!

Here's what I'm doing …

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.

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

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:

  • A research study to develop a vaccine that protects against lymphoma cancers.
  • A research trial to standardise international guidelines on melanoma removal.
  • A research grant to revolutionise the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
