Our Story …

We are really happy to announce that we're taking part in Mystery Box Rally in 2021 (it was going to be 2020 but well, we all know about 2020!).

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.

This rally will have us driving a car that is 25 years or older along outback roads. We will do approximately 2,500kms 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! In order for us to participate we need to raise $5,500 and every dollar raised goes to the Cancer Council! We would very much appreciate it if you could donate to the cause & help us on our journey!

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."

We have a car...introducing Pumpkin. She's a gorgeous 1995 Holden Commodore executive VS (fancy right?), and we're particularly excited about the Alpine CD player.

Pumpkin is heading into the workshop for a makeover - watch this space for her journey.

Introducing our Celebrity Car Consultant and Engineer........

This is my Dad and without him we would have a great deal of trouble even getting to the start line of the rally. He drove hours to buy our chosen car, checked it out, gave it his approval, drove it home, installed new springs, made and welded on a bash plate and has done innumerable repairs and fixes necessary to make sure it is in tip top shape for the rally. He has also provided it a home (love those sheds!) and kitted it out with a roof rack and after a random request at the family Christmas party - a Flux Capacitor! Though the time travel capabilities have yet to be tested.

You are amazing Dad - Thank you!

Sarah & Ross Ogden gave $100.00.
Absolutely terrific ladies! Kathleen, awesome event to be involved with, the car seems rather modern, I mean only 1995... I still think a 25 year old car is based in the 70s! Anyway, all the best with it, really hope you both survive the ordeal and each day, make it to the bar. Cheers & luv, Ross & Sarah

I got a huge shock at what year constituted a 25 year old car too. It was bought from a nice man in Toowoomba who had owned it since new and mercifully has no idea where it is off too - Mwuhahahaha! Thank you so much for your support - hope to catch up with you all soon.....

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.

Almost $24 million 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.
