Our Story …

Rhys & Paul 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.

This is the second run for team HAN'S OFF THE FALCON and we'll be driving our shitbox (a 1995 EF Ford Falcon Station Wagon) from Sydney to Melbourne to Alice and back to Sydney.

The Rally is set over 7 rigorous days and takes in some arduous terrain in the Australian outback. Much of the 3500 kilometers (2200 Miles for the Brits and Yanks) is on unsealed roads and tracks). We will be maintaining and repairing the car on the run while we camp along the way by night.

This grueling journey is in aid of Cancer Research Grants for all manner of Cancers that affect so many people each day. We have all be affected by Cancer over the course of our lives. Now we want to give back for all the support our family and friends with cancer have received over the years ?. All costs for the rally will be covered by Paul and Rhys however, we are looking to raise a total of $5,000 dollars along the way with donations and sponsorship.

All funds donated here go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part. 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.

With both our families having been affected by cancer we feel this is a very worthy charity

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.

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.
