Our Story …

We 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.


MUD SWEAT N BEERS are taking part in Shitbox Rally Winter 2024! approximately 250 teams are driving their Shitboxes from Melbourne to Alice Springs in June 2024, and with our Shitbox home again hopefully !!

TEAM: MUD SWEAT N BEERS ARE Philip Phelps local Adelaide lad and and Travis Dobie from Adelaide Hills we are doing this rally in memory of all cancer patients as we know people the vicious C has taken from us too soon!

Phil and Trav are good mates and have been talking about doing this rally for years and have now been accepted and are now busy organising fundraising events and fun nights to raise our $5000+ for cancer.


we will be updating our page as we go along with photos of the rally from different locations along the way.

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.

NOTE-<p></p><p>Mud Sweat N Beers has to raise $5000 for Cancer Council SA otherwise we will be refused from participating in the actually Rally and will be told to try again another year with better fundraising efforts.</p><p></p><p>We also have to meet requirements on how much has to be raised by a certain date. The consequences of not meeting the targets are "see you later, bye bye! Mud Sweat N Beers has exactly 2 weeks from today to reach the target of $2500. </p><p>(Nothing like a bit of good old-fashioned pressure)</p><p></p><p>We are hoping our first fundraising event will bring us over the line but we can't do it without the help from YOU!!!</p><p>Would love to see as many as people possible at the Oakbank Dinner, even if you don't know us, drop in and say HI.</p><p>Or if you can't make the dinner, please donate anything you can afford and help us and in return you will be helping Cancer Council SA.</p><p></p><p>At the end of the day it's all about supporting the people with Cancer and their families, the people who have had cancer and also the people who might get cancer in the future.</p><p></p><p>I'm sure everyone would agree that this is all for a Great Cause!</p><p></p><p>Trav</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.
