Over the last five years, Shitbox Rally has raised over $10m for Cancer Council
You’re doing what?!
Shitbox Rally was originally founded in
Australia and in 2016 we ran the rally for the first time
internationally, with New Zealand as our chosen location.
New Zealand is not as vast as Australia
so it does not take as long to get off the beaten track, but the roads,
locations, mountain passes and terrain are completely unique and will be
highly challenging for both teams and their Shitbox.
Shitbox is not a race, it is 100% a challenge to test cars worth no
more than NZ$1,700 over vast distances and variable terrain over a full
week all in the name of charity.
This rally is for those that want to have an adventure, that crave
something different, something memorable, but most importantly, it’s for
those who want to raise much needed money for charity.
Many of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. Whether
it be parents, family, close friends, people we know or ourselves that
have battled or are battling cancer, this all too common and the horrid
disease has touched us all. We not only want to raise awareness and
money for our chosen charity, but we want to be able to offer support
and a friendly ear to those that have suffered or are suffering.
This event is a fundraiser for, and officially endorsed by the Cancer Council (Australia) and Cancer Society (NZ).
