Sam and Lawrence are happy to announce that we're 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.
The rally will have us drive a car that is 25 years or older along outback roads - in our case a 1995 Mazda. In 2021, we will do approximately 2,500 km in 5 days on some of Australia's harshest roads (+ 3000 km to get there and back), setting off from Rockhampton & returning to Rockhampton 5 days later. Each day is a mystery - we have no idea where we will be headed along the route.
In order for us to participate we need to raise $5,500 and every dollar raised goes to the Cancer Council. We are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. They do some awesome work supporting people with cancer, and funding important research.
We would love your support in this endeavour, and any donation comes with our greatest thanks.
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.
Almost $24 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
