We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2022 Spring!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Mackay to Darwin.
Why we are doing this???
We both have our reasons for participating in this great cause.
David lost both his parents at a young age of cancer, Romy nursed her Grandmother whilst she was going through her last days, due to her 3rd lot of cancer. Romy's father also has had his fight with liver cancer, and our Matron of Honor also passed away with Bowel cancer. Romy also went through 8mnths of treatment for Breast Cancer.
Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,500, over a 7 day across Australia endeavour 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.
More than $30 million over the past 12 years has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
