Our Story …

This is Betty. Betty is giving her life for human cancer research. Please assist Betty by giving to this worthy cause and sharing this page.


Betty is a 1999 Ford Falcon. Betty was purchased as a new vehicle by the esteemed Jester Pickel OAM in 1999. Together Betty and Jester drove 271,000km. That is the equivalent of driving around the Earth 7 times.


The call came out of a strapping steed to volunteer to sacrifice their life. The sacrifice to drive a significant loop around some of Australia's harshest most rugged terrain. It is expected that this will result in the death of Betty. 


Betty gave her life to save the human race please help Betty but donating and sharing this post.


We love you Betty!

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.
