We are really happy to announce that we are taking part in the Mystery Box Rally in 2021! The Mystery Box Rally is one of the largest community-led fundraising events for the Cancer Council in Australia.
This rally will have us driving a car that is at least 25 years old along outback roads and offroad terrain. We will cover approximately 2500kms in 5 days! We set off from Rockhampton & return 5 days later, with each day inbetween a mystery. We have no idea where we will be headed until the morning of.
So, why are we taking part in this rally? Firstly, to raise money for the Cancer Council. 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, and we felt it would be good to get out and do something positive for community.
Secondly, we want to bring awareness of LGBTIQ+ issues to regional Australia. How will we do this you ask? All will be revealed shortly, but our Priscilla-themed entry will definitely make a statement wherever it goes.
In order for us to participate we need to raise $3,500, with every dollar raised going to the Cancer Council. We would very much appreciate it if you could donate to the cause & help us on our journey!
With love and solidarity, Bradford and Josef xx
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."
