Our Story …

Two friends with absolutely zero mechanical knowledge between them are taking part in Shitbox Rally Winter 2024! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Alice Springs. So there are bound to be some laughs!

We are doing this for all of our friends and family, and quite literally anyone who's lives have been impacted by cancer. Shitbox Rally is the largest community led 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 never wanting to do anything by halves we are aiming for 10k!

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 and we eventually will get savy with social media so you can laugh along with us on our journey!

We have officially bought our 1998 Pulsar Plus! (Yeah you heard me we got the plus!) Named on behalf of our first sponsor 'El Burro' will be responsible for getting us over the finish line!

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>Just the other day over a cerveza Eduardo posed an interesting question- "would it be possible to support cancer research by eating tacos...." </p><p> With thanks to the team at EL Burro Cantina the answer is- HECK YEAH IT IS! The Dos Amigos Locos are partnering with the team at El Burro Cantina </p><p> for an afternoon of fun, prizes, ice cold margaritas, and most importantly TACOS! Thanks to the incredible generosity of Marcus, Mali and the team at EL Burro- 100% of taco </p><p> sales will go directly into our fundraising efforts! You heard us! For every $5 taco you scoff down there will be $5 donated straight into funding cancer research!</p><p> Chef Marcus and the team are also brewing up a batch of Dos Amigos Locos Shitbox Rally Hot Sauce! </p><p> Pick yours up on the day with all proceeds from the hot sauce also going straight into funding cancer research! We will be doing a live drawing of our major fundraising raffle. (entries close midnight the night before) - you don't physically have to be there to win a prize but its certainly a better way to celebrate!We are so excited (and ridiculously appreciative) to have El Burro Cantina on board as our first sponsor and blown away by the generosity and support of the team! This is going to be one heck of a great afternoon with some amazing people supporting an incredible cause!So tell your friends, tell your enemies, and tell those who you feel largely ambivalent about! The more the merrier and we can't wait to see you there</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.
