Our Story …

1 in 2 Australians will hear the words "you have cancer" in their lifetime.


We’re doing our bit to help change this.

We're excited to be participating in the Winter 2024 Shitbox Rally. These events have raised over $40 million to fund 52 cancer research projects over the last 14 years. That's a big impact.

Bangers & Cash is a father & son team - David & Jetson Cairns. And like many Australians, we've seen family and friends battle with cancer. So we’ll be heading halfway across the country - from Melbourne to Alice Springs with a bunch of other champs - driving $1,500 bangers to raise money for the Cancer Council.

Please join us on the journey by making your donation today.

The rally kicks off in 2024, but our fundraising starts right now. We need your help to meet & exceed our own team target - $7,500. Any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. The Winter 2024 event fundraising target is set at $2 million.

If you're a business and would like to sponsor us, you can - there's a package for that. These events have 60k+ Facebook followers and 10k+ on Instagram who love and share the content the events create. See the video here for more, and follow our page for updates.

We’re extremely proud to support such an important cause. Thank you - Jetson & David.

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.

Hi David. Thought you were half joking about the SB Rally, and here you are. Best of luck to you and Jetson and, if you end up in a 360, you may need all the luck you can get. Looking forward to seeing you get to the finish line. Rgds, Wolfgang. PS - no, Nick's 360 is not a "parts car".

Thank you Kay for your very generous donation. I'm moved that it's the memory of Laurie. I'm sure you miss him everyday. He was a man of action, a doer of things and a participator in life. We will pack his energy and ingenuity with us, on our journey to the Alice.

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.

$41 million over the past 13 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.
