Next year me, Grimesy (55) and Cozzie (17) are taking part in the Shitbox Rally. We've bought our shitbox, a VT commodore with a million miles on it from DJ Will Kiss (look him up on Spotify.) Took a bit of negotiation but we got him down to $1000.
We're just a couple of old footballers from Upwey trying to have fun and raise a bit of cash for the Cancer Council. One of our old team mates Slimmo has been battling the big C for a few years and he's only still with us because of the great work of the cancer researchers.
So, if you're here reading this, put your hand in your pocket and drop a bit of cash into our virtual donation tin. We're aiming to get to $5k but we'd be happy with much more, so don't be a stingy bastard. Cheers for your support, we'll drink a beer in your honour on the way.

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.
Over $26 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
