Our Story …

One Australian is diagnosed with cancer every 4 minutes and one in two Australians will be diagnosed by the age of 85. Cancer is the leading form of deaths in Australia and we would like to do our bit to help.

We are Dale & Jason; two great mates who, along with many others, have been personally affected by this horrible disease. Together we are team Greased Lightning!

We might not be the smartest people going ‘round and are not going to find a cure ourselves, but what we are going to do is help the people that will.

We are thrilled to have been accepted to participate in an adventure of epic proportions and are taking part in the Shitbox Rally 2022 Autumn edition. This will see us, along with hundreds of other cars, travel through the harsh Australian outback from Wollongong to Mackay in a car worth less than $1000.

Our journey over the next 8 months is dedicated to Dale’s Mum & Dad and Jason’s Aunty Sheryl, each taken from us far too early.
We are doing this for them and everybody else who has been touched by cancer.


Shitbox Rally is the largest community led 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 $1,000, 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.

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.

27 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.
