We're doing this for Krissy. We've been friends since school, Janine is her sister. We lost Krissy to Leukaemia. Nothing can even begin to fill the hole in our hearts. But, do you know we can help to fund the amazing work that our incredible researchers do in their never ending search for answers? Yes we can. Will they ever find the answer? Smarter people than us are leading the charge. Our role in this fight is to raise as much as we can to help them find those answers. These are people that wake up at 3am with an idea. One day that one person may come up with the answer. This is why we rally.
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:
