We are really happy to announce that we are taking part in Mystery Box Rally in 2021!! Mystery Box Rally is one of the largest community lead fundraising events for the Cancer Council in Australia having raised over $4.5 million in the last 9 years.
Both of us work in medical imaging and frequently assist in the diagnosis and ongoing care of patients dealing with cancer. Through this, we have witnessed the devastating effect cancer can have on the individual, as well as their family and friends. Despite this, we have also been deeply touched by their inspiring stories of courage and resilience.
We both have a love of driving and adventures, and want to do our bit to help the people we meet and the wider community. Cancer is a journey, so we have decided to go on our own journey and take part in Mystery Box 2021 to raise funds for the Cancer Council to continue its important work and research.
We need to raise a minimum of $3500, but we want to go beyond this and raise $5000+ Fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.
Teams will drive their own 25+ year old cars along a mystery route in this unique 5 day challenge, all in the name of cancer research. The route is a loop starting and finishing at the same location, but all the other details are kept under wraps, only given to the teams each morning.
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."
Mystery Box 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 Mystery Box Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.
