Shitbox Rally Spring 2022
Our Story …

Not sure who is more crazy. Myself (David Rogers) or Stan McCullagh. What have I got us into.

All I know is that neither of us have been camping, in tents, for close on 35 years. They tell us that we will get plenty of time to think over our decision when we depart on the 2022 Spring ShitBox Rally from Mackay to Darwin. And not on many sealed roads! But hell, we're both up for the challenge, especially when it means raising money for cancer.

This is our first time joining all the other crazy but wonderful people (and volunteers) on the ShitBox Rally.

We are keen to raise as much money, for the Cancer Council, as we can so we are 'Rallying' all our Friends and Family to donate as much as they can to this very worthy cause.

This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Mackay to Darwin, some 3342 kms. This is longer than driving from one end of New Zealand to the other (Auckland to Invercargill) and back in just 7 days!

We have purchased our shitbox with more than a few kms, on the clock, to hopefully make the journey. We are busy preparing it for the rally. We just need to get the vehicle from Warrnambool in South West Victoria to Mackay. That's at least another 3000 odd kms, as we will be going via Brisbane.

We are participating in the rally to honour all those people who we have lost to cancer. Stan and Dave are doing this in honour of Stan's Mother (Maisie), Mother-In-Law (Kay) and Father-in-Law (Neville) apart from other all the other people they know that have fought cancer over the years.

Please help them by donating as much as you can by clicking on the 'Donate Now' link below.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 13th 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 Spring rally target set at $2,500,000 plus.

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.

Thanks Di for the generous donation. Where do you think the fuel comes from for the bonfire at the end of the rally? It is the ritual burning of the rally clothes that make the flames so high!! Thanks again.

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.

In the past 12 years, over 29 million dollars 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.
