Our Story …

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.

This is our second go at the rally, and this time we are doing it in the memory of our dear friend Steve Blue. Steve was a long time family friend who enjoyed good music, good company and a good bottle of red. Unfortunately Steve lost his battle with cancer in 2020. We would like to think he is with us in spirit as we embark on this adventure.

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.

All my best wishes to you both Danny and Paul. I’m sure Steve will be with you in spirit along the way. Unless you break down and then you’re on your own! Thank you for honouring Steve in this way, love Val

Hi Val, I just want to say "thank you" so much for your generous donation as well as your support for us in this event. As red wine dreamers Steve and I had several talks about the rally around the fire at Gunnedah over the years and I think he would have been perfectly at home in the Shitbox mayhem - like a long weekend on steroids. Paul and I are honoured to have dedicated our run to him and we promise not to break down. Thank again - Danny and Paul

<p>Years of shuttling up and down the expressway between the Central Coast and Sydney have taken their toll. But with Paul's guiding hand at removing the bugs (literally piles of cockroaches inside) as well as other gremlins and leaks - Betty will make a solid team mate in the rally from Mackay to Darwin. Stay tuned for further updates.</p>

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.
