Schwag and Kelly here. We are happy to share that we’re participating in the Shitbox Rally for Winter 2024. This means we’re driving a shitbox (a car worth no more than $1500) from Melbourne to Alice Springs, all funds going to Cancer Council.
It goes without saying that all of our lives have been impacted by cancer at some point, and it would mean the world to us if you considered throwing a few dollars toward our team so that we can help Cancer Council to keep up the good work.. Our goal at this stage is $5k - but we hope to go well beyond this!
Stay tuned for more content as we work out how we’re going to do this thing and for some sponsorship opportunities (media opportunity of a lifetime).
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.
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:
