Shitbox Rally Autumn 2023
Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2023 Autumn!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Newcastle to Townsville.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 13th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2023 Autumn rally target set at $2,000,000 plus.

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.

Here's what I'm doing …

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.

<p>Rally advice is to get your Shitbox close to the rally. It seems we are not good at taking advice and I have just come to an agreement with a lovely gentleman name Tristan who has agreed to sell me his car. It's an absolute beauty, it seems unkind to refer to it as a Shitbox, but it's in the rally. Tristan has even thrown in some spares which we may need alaong the way. So we are now searching for a theme to decorate the car, current front runner is as a Krankenwagen (https://youtu.be/-_xUIDRxdmc), but the car is blue so I'll be using a lot of white contact to get it to a good Krankenwagen base colour.</p><p></p><p>Teaser shots below...</p>

<p>Here it is in all its glory...A 2004 Mazda MPV, V6 motor provided by Ford! A lovely, family friendly blue colour with a small ding in the back. It is really in too good condition to call a Shitbox, but at $500 it fits the bill. Given the inside space and outside colour it may be decorated as a TARDIS. Just have to explain what a Tardis is to Beate!I will be attempting a repair to the rear end over the weekend, look out for more updates soon.</p><p></p><p>Click here to donate... https://autumn2023.shitboxrally.com.au/beate-to-betoota-and-beyond</p>

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.

More than $30 million over the past 12 years 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.
