Our Story …

In Autumn 2020 Aaron & James are taking part in the Shitbox Rally - the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia!
We all know someone who has been touched by cancer and this cause is especially important to the both of us personally.
This year, all the teams are (hopefully) driving their shitboxes from Alice Springs to the Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria to raise money for the Cancer Council!
Shitbox Rally is now in its 11th year and this year we aim to raise over $2,000,000!
As a couple of industrious engineers, we are pretty hopeful we can get our $1,000 car across Australia... but the hardest part is the fundraising, so ANY donation you can give to this worthwhile cause is greatly appreciated! You can donate to our team and follow our progress via this page. Thanks!

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.

In memory of my Aunt Grace Morley (nee Michelmore) - a kind and caring Aunt who bonded a diverse family. Favourite memory is toasting in the 1979 New Year at Lake Fyans with a cup of tea!

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.
