We are in!!!! Jo & Cheryl are driving from Newcastle to Townsville for the Shitbox Rally Autumn 2023 in their very own shitbox.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in it’s 13th year. Best of all, funds raised go to cancer research helping to find a cure for this disease that has touched most of us in some way.
As you would expect there will be costumes (possibly a tutu or two), music, food, drinks, friends, fun plus hours and hours of driving, dust, dirt and camping.
We need your help. Each team needs to raise a minimum of $5000 plus costs for the rally ($1500 vehicle, safety equipment, fuel, travel expenses etc).
We will be giving you updates along our journey from purchasing our vehicle to decorating it, costumes, planning, fundraising and eventually the rally itself. So how can you help?

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,500, 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.
More than $30 million over the past 12 years has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
