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!
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."
Shitbox Rally is a dedicated fundraising event for cancer research with funds going to Cancer Council.
