Our Story …

I am really pleased to be taking part in the Shitbox Rally in 2018!! The rally is the largest private fundraiser in the Cancer Council's calendar, having raised more than $10M for cancer research over the last 9 years. I became involved with the rally when my youngest sister, Heather, was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in July 2013 and initially given less than two years to live. She is still kicking cancer's butt, more than 4 years on, having benefited from anti-nausea drugs, chemotherapy and gene-targeted therapies, and even having had a brain tumour eradicated with gamma knife radiosurgery. I would like to help the Cancer Council continue its vital work, by raising as much money as possible to help others affected by cancer. Your support, by way of a donation, would be greatly appreciated. Please follow our progress via this page and our Facebook page (search Animal to find us). Thank you!

Here's what I'm doing …

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, over a 7 day across Australia endeavour 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."

Been thinking about the challenge for Julie: Getting a lift home on the crossbar of your bike, making you navigate to a specific place on a complicated route all by yourself, or even riding backwards, like Bill suggested. But it seems there is something that seems to be altogether much more of a challenge. Even though we live close to each other and work for the same agency, we still only seem to catch up once or twice a year at school events, or when I drop into the office. So, the challenge is....a night out! Organise your sisters to come (maybe not in Teletubbies outfits this time), by yourself or with other friends! Challenge must be completed before you embark on the rally.

You are an inspiration Julie and I am in awe of the tireless work you do to raise money for cancer research. This money is donated in memory of my mother, and the 12 Mother's Days we would have had together if cancer hadn't snuck its way into our lives. I hope my donation will help make the lives of those affected by cancer a little brighter.

Jason, the sentiment behind your donation is beautiful and I am privileged to receive it in your Mum's honour. Every day, I see the benefits research has for my sister. Every year, I hear about exciting new developments from the Cancer Council. Your donation will definitely make a difference. Thank you x

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.

Over $13 million 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.
