Our Story …

Hello dear friends and family!

Jade and Bertrand are set for the adventure of a lifetime when they join a convoy of teams in Shitbox Rally, Australia’s largest independently-run fundraiser for Cancer Council.

We are seeking your support to raise money to fund cancer research and eradicate this horrible disease that has touched so many families, ours included. Our participation is dedicated to Jade’s dad, Dean Randall, who lost his life to pancreatic cancer in December 2019. Our thoughts are with all who have lost a loved one to cancer. 

We will be driving 3342km from Mackay to Darwin in Spring 2022 in a “Shitbox” (a car worth less than $1500). Driving thousands of kilometres across the far north of Australia, including negotiating river crossings and corrugated roads, dodging kangaroos and crocodiles, all while keeping our Shitbox on the road, is going to be a phenomenal challenge, and we're up for it!


And we really need YOUR help!


Shitbox Rally is the largest community-lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia, raising over $29 million since the first Rally in 2010. Part of the participation is that each team has to raise a minimum of $5,000, but most teams raise more than this amount.

The 2022 Spring rally target is $2,500,000 across all teams. 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. 

On behalf of the Cancer Council, we say a BIG thank you for your support!

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.

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.
