John and Lars are excited to announce they're taking part in the Shitbox Rally Autumn 2022!
They will be joining over 200 teams when they depart Wollongong on May 7 and make their way, in their 1984 Ford Meteor Shitbox, through remote communities and hopefully, arriving in Mackay seven days later.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 12th year. All teams undertake to raise $5,000 in the name of cancer research before we depart. John and Lars are targeting $6,000. The overall 2022 Autumn rally target is 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
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.
In the past 12 years, over 29 million dollars has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
