Hi family and friends.
Dad, (Doito) and myself (Jason), are excited to announce that we are taking part in Mystery Box Rally, 2021!
The 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 driving a car that is 25 years or older along dusty outback roads. We will do approximately 2,500kms in 5 days!
We set off from Rockhampton and will return back to Rockhampton 5 days later. Each day in between is a total mystery! We have no idea where we will be headed until the morning of.
As you will see, the old XG Van is called 'The Bopper' after our old great mate Bopper (John Mooney). I know that he would be excited, honoured, and raising his beer to wish us all the best.
We have set a target of $15,000 - remember it all goes to the Cancer Council and is a great tax deduction!
Any donation and support towards our journey and this cause is very much appreciate.
Thanks so much friends.
Jeff and Jason
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.
