Our Story …

Ok, you found us, thanks for visiting our page! :)


We are really pleased to announce that Phil Ore and Kev Schafer are taking part in Shitbox Rally Winter 2024! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Alice Springs! What's the deal? Well you have to find a car that costs less than $1500 and then drive it across the country whilst staying in a 1 star accommodation each night........ aka we both have a little tent each and get to spend time under the stars. It's not 5 Star Luxury, it's long days driving but it will be with an amazing bunch like minded people and an opportunity to feel connected to the heart of this amazing land.


Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 14th year. It's almost impossible to find anyone who hasn't been impacted by cancer, whether that's personally or through someone they know and love. Both Phil and Kev has lost people dear to them (Phil lost his Dad) and being able to do this together is a great opportunity to raise essential funds.

So, here's why we need you.......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.

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.
