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!
The car we will be taking is a 1994 BMW 318i, relatively rust free and all the usual charm of an older European automobile. It cost $1000 and mechanically is going ok, including the luxury of a sunroof, we will post plenty of updates as we journey along
Currently to help drum up donations we have created a raffle, for every $50 you donate you get one entry into the draw, the prize is a very hard to get bottle of first batch whiskey from Archie Rose Distillery, no longer available in store and valued at around $400
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."
Meet our surprisingly rust free, $1000 (legit got it for $1000), Chariot of Awesome.
This 1994 BMW .318 will hopefully get us to the Mysterybox rally (and back).
Naming rights will be auctioned off soon so if you have a hilarious and non offensive name to give it please keep an eye out for the chance to name her.
So to help drum up donations Geoff and Chris have created a raffle, for every $50 you donate you get one entry into the draw, the prize is a very hard to get bottle of first batch whiskey from Archie Rose Distillery, no longer available in store and valued at around $400
