Our Story …

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.


Who are the Snail Runners and why are they doing it?


Friends for 30 years, Matt (Head Snail) and Ady (Co-Snail) have decided to team up and take on the Australian outback in a car worth under a $1000 with the goal of not only finishing the event but more importantly raising money for the Cancer Council.


Why are we doing it?

The driving force behind the rally for Matt is his Grandmother (Oma), she battled cancer for 15 long years, in and out of chemo with some good weeks, some bad and some horrific weeks.


As a refugee from the 2nd World War, Oma had a fighting spirit down to her last breathe. The day cancer finally took her she said goodbye to 2 children, 5 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and 2 beloved dogs and is missed dearly by us all.


Cancer has had a massive impact on too many lives and driving a shitbox around Australia is a small challenge compared to many who have to battle cancer every day.


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.

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.

My family has also been touched and research made all the difference between life and death. I did a few Endeavour Foundation Rally's back in the 90's and it was also a lot of fun for a great cause. Every success fellas.

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.
