Peter and Morgyn are taking part in Mystery Box Rally in July 2021 to raise funds for cancer research!!
This involves driving a car > 25 years old 2,500 km along outback roads over 5 days in a loop from Rockhampton, Queensland. Each day is a mystery; we have no idea where we will be headed until we set off each morning! We'll be in a 1995 Ford Falcon and will drive it from Adelaide to Rockhampton, do the Rally, then drive it back. What could possibly go wrong? We hope to avoid car problems, mouse plagues and COVID shut downs. We are really looking forward to the adventure which we will share with you on the way wherever there is mobile coverage.
Our goal is to raise $3,500 and every dollar raised goes to the Cancer Council and donations are tax deductible (AUS only). We would very much appreciate it if you could donate to the cause and help us on our journey!
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:
