Shitbox Rally Winter 2024
Our Story …

We're Ian and Andy. We're neighbouring farmers, and between us we've worked as a sign writer, a panel beater and a pilot. But, mostly, we like tinkering with stuff, making things happen, and giving back to our community in the beautiful Meander Valley in Tassie.

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 - we've set our personal goal as $10,000. We're encouraging all of our friends and colleagues in the Meander Valley to get behind us as we fundraise for this very worthwhile cause.

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>So, we finally got our Shitbox. It's an AU Falcon (because Andy will only drive a Ford!) and it needs a little bit of TLC to get it to a point where we'll be reasonably confident that it will survive the trip. We'll post some photos in a few days.</p><p></p><p>After a busy year with work for both of us, and a lot of overseas travel by Ian, we're now able to concentrate on fundraising for this very worthwhile cause. Thank you so much to those who have already donated and we're always appreciative of any donation - large or small. We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and both of us are proud to be participating in an event that contributes so much to cancer research.</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.

$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.
