Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2018!! Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 9th year.

Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $4,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the $1,400,000 target. 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.

For those who are yet to meet us, we found out about the Shitbox Rally when Chris (son & brother) joined the Box Rallies family in 2012. We volunteered to help fundraise for this worthy cause. His first rally was with his mate Brodie Carter (2013, Team Cartworth), driving from Adelaide to Perth via Uluru. They had a fantastic time and they learned a lot about the rally, the cause, the people and the fun that comes when driving a car valued at $1000 (or less) through some rugged and remote areas of Australia. Ironically, Chris was diagnosed with cancer in December 2013 but decided to keep rallying and fundraising for cancer research while he underwent surgery and chemo treatments. He and Brodie drove in the Perth to Darwin Rally as Team Dafuq (their cheeky way of showing cancer the middle finger!!) in 2014. Chris used doing the rallies as incentive to recover from surgery and overcome the side-effects of chemo. His last rally was with his mate Brodie in their trusty 1989 Nissan Pulsar from Canberra to Townsville in 2015. He registered to drive the 2015 Mystery Box Rally in a mother & son team but though he tried his best, he did not achieve that goal. Chris died in October 2015.

His memory is carried forward in this mother & son team - Sarah and Michael Holzworth. We have taken up the gauntlet, with the help of family and friends we have completed two Mystery Box Rallies (Sydney & Adelaide) and two Shitbox Rallies (Mackay to Hobart & Adelaide to Cairns). Our goal is to continue to raise funds and awareness for Cancer Research. There is a way to stop cancer from taking our loved ones. You will be helping to fund more research, TOGETHER WE WILL FIND IT!!!

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."

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 $11.8 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.
