After our successful Apollo 13.2 maiden voyage in 2022 we are back for more in Apollo 13.3. Command Module Pilot, Rod "Rocket" Anderson, and Lunar Module Pilot, Sheryn "Phiz" Anderson are really pleased to announce we're taking part in Shitbox Rally March 2023 Summer voyage, remembering those forever young & never forgotten! With so many families touched by cancer, this is just a small offering in life to honour so many families. To those close to Sheryn and Rod this is a tribute to Bob Wiggs, Denise Anderson (68), and Ross Sawatzky (48). This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes 3342klms from Rockhampton via the Artesian Basin to Hobart overseas via the Spirit of Tasmania.
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 $10,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2023 Spring 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.
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:
