Our Story …

Once again BATVAN will be travelling the Aussie outback in the 2018 Shitbox Rally for Cancer Council from Brisbane to Darwin. Why? Because we know that the funds we raise with your help goes where it's needed most. Through the relationship Shitbox Rally and Cancer Council has built up over the last 8 years we know your donation will be channeled directly into research for better testing methods, prevention, diagnosis, treatments and cures. Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 9th year. In 2016 we achieved $13000 and backed it up in 2017 with $15000, this year we want to make a bigger impact with $20000. These funds go to the 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. Best regards Mike, Bruce & BATVAN

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, this year for the 10th year anniversary rally, over a 10 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.

On Saturday we make the trek across the continent to Brisbane for the start of the 2018 Shitbox Rally for Cancer Council, up through the guts of QLD to Darwin for a days rest then slide back down through the Kimberley's via Broome and the WA coastline to home. 12000km in 3 weeks!!!

A huge thanks to everyone so far who has supported our team and donated to cancer research and put us over our initial $20000 target. We first thought this was out of reach but with a week to go and still lots of support coming in we've raised the bar. Mike learnt this from his Sales Managing days in car yards, once you reach target the boss's put it up higher :(

$25000 will put us well over $50000 for the 3 years we have been involved in SB Rally.

We are humbled by the amount of support from everyone who gets behind a $600 Tarago and help make a difference to cancer survival rates now and in the future.

Thanks Mike & Bruce & the BATVAN.

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.

Almost $15 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.
