Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another at some point and we thought it was time to give something back.
We strive to spend as little as possible in hopes of raising as much as possible for the cancer council.
While we may be under achievers, our 1995 Volvo wagon is definitely not with well over 350 thousand kilometers on the clock and a broken odometer, he still has plenty of life and spirit left to do as much good as possible.
With a whopping $500 dollars spent on this bad boy we plan on driving it to the end of the world and back for the best possible cause. Well maybe not the end of the world but this shitbox will go on the trip of a lifetime driving from the small border town of Wodonga all the way to Alice springs and then back to the Gold Coast... Hopefully. Close to 6 and a half thousand kilometers is nothing with a working radio right?
If you or someone you care about has been directly affected by illnesses such as cancer then what better way to contribute to the cause than to donate to, share, and support in any way, our rally team.
Because for the first time in our life, these under achievers plan on well and truly over achieving
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.
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:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
