Well here we go again, AGAIN.. This is the 4th shot at another rally. We lost Jude in ‘18, abandoned due to Covid in ‘19 & ‘20 and we lost Di in ‘21. So it has been tuff but we are ready to go in ‘22 for Jude n Di. The Peugeot died last week and it has been a scramble to find and prep a replacement vehicle in time to get to Wollongong for the start on 7 April. We have found something, an Astra. It looks better than it is underneath, vis the 350,000km would suggest some wear and tear. Still finding what does and what doesn't work. Its been a busy few days, a true ShitBox experience.
Ray & Dale thank you for your earlier support where we have raised >$18k over the two abandoned rallies. You will be able to track our progress on the way to McKay at the following address:
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:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
