Our Story …

Casey Dent passed away on 9 October 2020, a victim of kidney cancer. Casey loved life, his partner Amanda, his children and his many friends & family. A fighter by nature, even Casey could not defeat the blight of cancer.

Our team - Dented Pride - is participating in the Mystery Box Rally 2021 in Casey's honour.

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. Rod and Andrew will be driving a car that is 25 years or older along outback roads. We will do approximately 2,500 kilometers in 5 days! We set off from Rockhampton & return back to Rockhampton 5 days later, each day in between is a mystery, we have no idea where we will be headed until the morning of!

Our goal is to raise $30,000 for the Cancer Council. Every single dollar that we raise goes to this important cause. We would very much appreciate it if you could donate to the cause and help us on our journey!

Thank you, Rod and Andrew

Here's what I'm doing …

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."

<p><strong>WE'VE GOT OUR RALLY CAR!</strong></p><p></p><p>Donors and sponsors, the Mystery Box Rally was postponed due to Covid19 and will now commence from Rockhampton on 29 July.</p><p></p><p>Rod and Andrew have been scouring the online vehicle vendors. Rally rules require that our vehicle be at least 25 years old and not be 4WD; and the expectation is that it should be valued < $2,000.</p><p></p><p>So here it is! Meet "The Beast", our 37 year old Mercedes 380SE V8. Weighing in at 1,600kg and generating150kW of flaming fury, The Beast will churn through 18 litres/100km and achieve an unimpressive 0-100 in 11 seconds!</p><p></p><p>We are working with the team at Bribie Car Care to get The Beast up to spec, and look forward to rallying in honour of the late, great Casey Dent in July.</p>

<p><strong>GETTING "THE BEAST" READY TO CURE CANCER</strong></p><p></p><p>A <strong><em>HUGE </em></strong>shout out to the wonderful Jodie, Adam and Scott from <strong>Bribie Car Care</strong> for all the (free) work they've done on The Beast to get it ready for this year's Mystery Box Rally. Yes, our Mercedes 380SE now has steering, brakes and tyres!!!</p><p></p><p>We've been getting in a few practice miles, and can report back that The Beast absolutely gallops on the open road; not so much in the urban setting.</p><p></p><p>It's now only four months until the start of the rally, and Rod & Andrew are in fundraising mode. Our generous, amazing donors have already contributed more than $20,000 to the Cancer Council. Thank you to you all!</p><p></p><p>Until next update, remembering Casey Dent </p>

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

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.

More than $30 million over the past 12 years has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:

  • A research study to develop a vaccine that protects against lymphoma cancers.
  • A research trial to standardise international guidelines on melanoma removal.
  • A research grant to revolutionise the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
