We're so excited to be taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2018 in our 2005 Ford wagon, Gordon. Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council's in Australia and is now in its 9th year.
This cause is very close to our hearts, having both witnessed first-hand the cruel fate of cancer on family and friends. We are embarking on this adventure in their honour and know that we will have every single one of those we’ve lost, those still fighting AND the amazing warriors who've vanquished this horrible disease sitting on our shoulders cheering us on.
Part of the participation is that all teams must raise a minimum of $4,000. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. We have set our fundraising goal at $10,000 as truly believe we have the supporters behind us to get us to this goal.
The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and our dedicated team Facebook page. Also, don’t feel shy about sharing us with your friends and family who may also like to donate to this very worthy cause and follow our crazy adventure.
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.
