Welcome to our team's page,
I'll give you a little introduction to our team, The Pirate's Of The Car I Be In. Martin is gearing up for the Autumn Rally being his third time taking this team through the road's less travelled in a little Shit box! Trying to keep up with Martin will be his daughter, Ruby. For anyone that knows Martin, he's going to be hard to keep up with!
We could not be more excited to start fundraising for the 2022 Autumn Rally and to be one of the many teams that are driving our Shitboxes from Woolongong to Mackay in an effort to raise money for the Cancer Council, a cause close to our hearts. We both feel so closely to this fundraiser as we have both been effected losing family and friends to cancer and couldn't think of a better way to raise money while promoting The Shit Box Rally for more people to do.
Over the coming months we are aiming to raise $10,000 to go towards the Autumn Rally target of $2,5000,000 and we cannot thank any one enough for choosing to donate to us. Any donation is greatly appreciated, big or small, and makes a difference getting to that final target.
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:
