We are thrilled to announce our participation in the Shitbox Rally Winter 2024!
We are 2 friends Silvie and Stevie from Sydney’s Northern Beaches embarking on this chance of a life time to take part in this epic event to push the limits of ourselves and our faithful “shitbox” and to raise money for a cause that is close to our hearts!
Dedicating the run to Steve’s beautiful mother. A proud Wiradjuri woman who we lost to cancer in 2021. Her beautiful ways instilled in our hearts forever. May her strength and love guide us safely on our journey.
This year, teams from all over will be driving their "shiboxes" from Melbourne to Alice Springs. The Shitbox Rally is a remarkable fundraising event for Cancer Council Australia, now in its 14th year.
To participate, teams must raise a minimum of $5,000, though we aim to surpass this goal. These funds contribute to Cancer Council's invaluable work, and we are immensely proud to play our part in supporting this worthy cause.
Fundraising the required amount is no easy task, so any contribution you can make is sincerely appreciated. Be sure to follow our journey
We all have loved ones who have been affected by cancer, so help us reach our goal so we can help the Cancer Council's achieve theirs
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.
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:
