We are thrilled to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally in 2018!! Jelley’s Endeavour is made up of Liz and Ian, a couple from Brisbane who are into raising money for cancer charities whilst creating some memories and having a heap of fun along the way. We are doing it all in loving memory of Lance Jelley, rally enthusiast and top bloke, who fought the good fight and is missed every day. In 2016 we were a part of the Mysterybox Rally (little sister to the Shitbox Rally) and with the help of our family, friends and community raised a whopping $11,237.50 for the Cancer Council. About the team: When Ian isn't suiting up during the week in his real job, he's swinging on the flying trapeze (with the greatest of ease), juggling, or balancing things on his face. Liz is a concrete cowgirl who knows every word to every country song, but can't remember her own birthday. She's no circus freak like Ian but she is a magician (she makes rum disappear... ta da!) Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council's 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. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.
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.
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.
