Our Story …

TEAM ACORN & OAK

We have dragged this Aussie V8 1974 Leyland P76 60,000km around Australia for the Shitbox Rally.


2022's Wollongong to Mackay Rally will be our lucky number 7 rally and the first with Father & Daughter Laurie & Laura behind the wheel.


Over the years, team Acorn & Oak has raised over $57,000 for the Cancer Council.


We are accepting all donations, large or small, to help us help the Cancer Council. Please dig deep.


We thank our ongoing sponsors, the best local taverns; The Acorn, and The Oak Tree in The Basin, Victoria, and all our local crew x


INFO ABOUT THE RALLY


Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 12th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2022 Autumn rally target set at $2,500,000.


These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below

Here's what I'm doing …

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,500, over a 7 day across Australia endeavour 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.

You amaze me big brother with your energy and generosity. Such special memory seeing you drive across the finish line at Cold Coast and sharing dinner at Uluru. So proud of you Laura May for taking up the challenge to spend 7 days with your father confined to a dusty hot car. All for an amazing cause so close to all our hearts. Who knows maybe we will see you at the finish line. This donation is from Mum as well.

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.

More than $30 million over the past 12 years 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.
