We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2023 Summer!! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Rockhampton to Hobart.
The team is named after Galloping Corrosion, Liv's father's saloon car that's he raced at the exhibition speedway in the 60s. John recently won his battle with cancer so the cause hits close to home and the name seemed fitting. There is also a long history of breast cancer in Liv's family.
Cancer effects the lives of so many and we are very excited to do our bit to raise some much needed funds, as well as have some fun along the way!
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:
