Our Story …

Pat and Sam are two friends living in Melbourne who're rejoining the Shitbox Rally 2024 Winter event to raise money for the Cancer Council. We are resurrecting the beast of a car - the 1993 Nissan Micra and making our way through to Alice Springs

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.

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>This will be the second rally for the Mighty Micra, having previously completed Shitbox Rally Spring 2022: Hay to Adelaide via Arkaroola.</p><p></p><p>Our noble Micra was purchased from a paddock in country Victoria for $300 and was very much in need of some love.</p><p></p><p>Running on 3 cylinders, unregistered and without a roadworthy, this was just the start of a long journey to make it to the start line.</p>

<p>After a couple of busy weekends we had a far happier and healthier Micra: New spark plugs, Oil change and filter, New brake pads and discs, New sway bar links. Fresh air filter, Rear shocks replaced, Two fresh tyres, and a Wheel alignment. Then a nervous wait for the results of a roadworthy..</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.
