Our Story …

We are Lou and Peter Mimmo, brothers from Melbourne.


Our family was hit with the reality of cancer when Peter’s 9 year old daughter Aliyana (Ally) was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) in July 2021.

Ally began the fight of her life with a 2 and a half year treatment plan. She began Chemotherapy on the day she was diagnosed and continued to have chemo treatment that finished in November 2023.

Ally’s battle has been long and excruciating, she has had many obstacles to overcome including loss of leg muscles, diabetes, meningitis, many infections and the overall debilitating side effects of chemo.

Ally has shown so much resilience and has already endured more than most adults do in a lifetime! She has shown strength and courage well beyond her years and continues to fight for the healthy life she richly deserves.

At this point, our story is a story of luck, as Ally’s leukaemia is in remission and we are all supporting her as she continues the marathon to what is hopefully the finish line in November. *Update, Ally rang the bell at the Royal Children's Hospital on November 6, 2023.

Having been a family that has been severely touched by cancer we are passionate about raising awareness and funds to help finding a cure, prevention and providing immediate and ongoing support for all families that may find themselves in this unfortunate situation. 


We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally Winter 2024!

This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Alice Springs.

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 for our team, Ally: Warrior Princess, we plan 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 All and welcome to our team - Ally: Warrior Princess. </p><p>We're committed to keeping you updated as our Shitbox comes together in preparation for Winter 2024.</p><p>We've bought a 1996 Holden Statesman V6, it didn't run - for a few reasons, no fuel, no battery, they were the obvious ones, the cabin has it's own weather system, everything is soaking wet, even the ECU and BCM had moisture in them. </p><p>We've open these up and dried them out, added a few litres of unleaded and a battery, and it's alive!</p><p>We'll dry out the cabin and start working out why so much water is finding its way in - our Shitbox adventure has already began!</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.
