Our Story …

The Gunslingers(aka Mark & Lockie) are pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2018!! Shitbox Rally is the largest community fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 9th year. Nathan's(Lockie's young fella) diagnosis of Leukemia at the age of 3 opened our eyes to the world of Cancer, now he's back on track it's our turn to grab the guns, saddle the mighty steed and help take on the fight in the hope we can make a difference. The Cancer Council is an amazing organisation offering support, conducting research and teaching the masses about prevention. Get on board, be a part of our journey and help us make a difference - maybe we can help change but one life if not many. We need to raise $4000, we want to do a fair bit better than that! We want you to be part of the journey, from selecting a car to welcoming sponsors and attending events. We will keep you up to date on all things Gunslinger as we take on this crazy adventure- did we mention whats involved? A car worth less than a grand, driven nearly 4000k's from Brisbane to Darwin in a week through the outback of Aus. What could go wrong? Not to mention we need to get it there first! Help us out and have first dibs to some exciting events we are planning, it will be a wild ride!! Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

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."

Hi all, sorry for the lack of transmission. Have been busy with the crazy Christmas lead up! We have been busy little beavers getting the name out there, participating in a local Corperate Bowls comp. To date we have managed to stay undefeated thanks to the help of Skid, Flash, Dover, myself & Nibbles, we have been informed that due to the unrelenting pressure we apply we have been re-assigned to the next level comp. Here's hoping we can hold our form! We attended the local Albany show recently as well to help get the name out there, had a cracker couple of days watching the log chop and talking to a heap of people. thanks for catching up if you were there!We have also been selling stubbie holders through Wilson's Brewery so if you have a chance get on down there and support Matty and the team, we also have a limited number of hats available if you may be interested. See facebook for some pics! Looking to up the ante for the merc, let us know if you are interested in shirts , hats or beanies and we will see what we can do...I'd also like to send a massive Shout Out to Peter Watson for the kind donation. Pete's a top bloke that does all he can to help the community so to have his support is pretty bloody good! Hope you can make it to one of the impending events Pete, we know your a busy fella so don't feel bad if you cant make it. Cheers Slingers...

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.
