Our Story …

G’day y’all, Josh and I are proud to announce that in May 2020, we will be taking part in the glorified annual Shitbox Rally!! Racing as ‘The Hipster and The Hick,’ we will be driving from Alice Springs to the Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria (approx. 3,960kms) over 7 days alongside a veritable flotilla of cars, each worth less than $1,000!!

This is all in the hopes of raising money for the Cancer Council, a charity which we both hold dear due to our own experiences with this horrible disease. I guess that it isn’t really a surprise that we’re doing this in memory of our dad, Paul. All the money raised goes straight through to them, with each team required to meet a $5,000 minimum target – although this is regularly exceeded, with the overall goal of this particular rally set at $2,000,000.

So please, tell your friends, their friends, their parents, maybe even their parents, and give generously! This is the hardest part, trying to raise the funds, and we both really appreciate every dollar that is given. Please don’t forget to follow our progress/watch us make fools of ourselves along our journey via this page and our blog post below.

Cheers,
Lachy and Josh

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.
