Our Story …

Doppelbrenner Mark II: "The Doppels" are doing it again! After succesful completion of the Mystery Box Rally Townsville 2015 ($6,500 raised - check out the video - you guys rock!!) - we are now off for the real deal: 3,800 km from Brisbane to Darwin. Our team has received a minor update: this year Jan will run with Frank - Gunnar will provide spiritual remote support.

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.

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."

We just bought our Shitbox! A Swedish beauty: 1995 Saab 900S. 2.5l, 6cyl, manual gear box, does not start when engine is warm, "Check Engine" light flashing erratically. But the Radio-Cassette player has an awesome sound (Dolby B) and the interior is only slightly smelly. The aircon does a good job in keeping inside and external temperature in sync. We love it.

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.
