Our Story …

Over thousands of miles and many many rallies, this carbon-offset 1974 V8 Leyland P76 has raised near $70,000 for cancer research.


This year, lifelong friends (more like family) Em & Laura May are driving Laurie's beloved rally car from Naarm / Melbourne to Mparntwe / Alice Springs. Help us help others, whilst eating up some dust and bitumen, with 250 other rally cars in June 2024.


Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 14th 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 Winter 2024 rally target set at $2,000,000 plus.


These funds go to 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 $1,500, 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.

<p>Hi folks! I'm super excited to join Laura May on this 2024 winter adventure! I have watched 'the old man' (sorry, Grogan) travel on numerous shit box rallies both in the teams and as support, and it looks like a whole lot of fun! What a way to raise money for cancer research and see remote parts of this wonderful country, with an awesome bunch of humans. Looking forward to raising some money so any little bit will help reach our team goal. You can donate directly on this page or if you want to be a sponsor and get your logo on the leyland P76 reach Laura or I directly. Thanks in advance everyone, Em </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.

$46 million over the past 15 years 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.
