Our Story …

We are really 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. 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 $3,500 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."

Well boys this sounds like an amazing adventure and for a great course. We will be following all the social media’s to stay up to date on the rally also to make sure you guys make it home safe. Poor ol Lagertha is in for a surprise when Nick gets the skills out from the old Subaru and gravel road days. Look forward to hearing all about the memories created when you arrive home over a cold beer. Cheers Mick.

<p>Our car is a Volvo 740 GL we call Lagertha (a legendary Viking Shield- Maiden) and we have entered the rally to honour and remember my sister, Susie, who died of cancer in 2010. </p><p>Our aim is to raise a at least $100 for each year of her life (57 x $100) and, of course, to take part in a bush rally and fund-raising event with others.</p><p>Our car has 311,000 kms under her tyres and she is just 31 years old (young for a Volvo), but this is our first rally and we have appreciated the advice, encouragement and support received to date.</p><p>The drivers are Mike Millard (dad) from Brisbane and Nick Millard (son) from Ulladulla NSW.</p><p> </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.

Over $26 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.
