Last year, Nigel and I had such a great time on the rally. Nigel stood in for my Mum who was meant to be my co-driver but of course because of the very disease we are aiming to fight took yet another priority in her life, she was forced to sit this one out...again. But, little did we or anyone know that Nigel’s father Wally Carr would be diagnosed with stage 4 Cancer and be taken from us within just 6 heartbreaking weeks earlier this year. Naturally, this devastated the whole family. Nigel and I had decided that we would always honour Wally however and whenever we could. We want to do him proud and have him cheer us on from up above! So, this rally is dedicated to him. We are going to find the perfect Shitbox and decorate it with all things Wally! Wally was a legendary boxer and we are going to carry on his fighting legacy by helping kick Cancer’s arse! Please join the fight and donate whatever you can afford. Every donation above $2 is tax deductible. Any donation great or small is hugely appreciated! All moneys raised goes directly to The Cancer Council.

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:
