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 $5,500 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

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."

<p>Team update</p><p>It has been a tough 18 months for everyone and COVID has stuffed us up again, unless boarders are open before October 1st Will and I are heading on our Mystery Box Rally adventure in August, next year.</p><p>While this news is devastating it is also good to know that our teams position in the rally has been transferred to the new date with no additional requirements</p><p>Rally management has also reported the 2022 rally will be at a different location to the original Rockhampton, so anywhere in Australia is possible.</p><p></p><p>The rally car is still running strong and looks as ridiculous as ever with more in the works to kit it out further, please do share any ideas or sponsorship that you think will look good (or hilarious).</p><p></p><p>Will and I would like to thank all who have donated already, especially the Mansfield CWA who chipped in $200 towards our cause.</p><p>We are currently sitting at $5,230 and only need $270 more to hit our $5,500 goal (minimum needed to take part in the rally), anything we raise over that goal is all gravy for the Cancer Council</p><p></p><p>Fingers crossed we are in a better position next year.</p><p></p><p>Cheers</p><p>Chris Lewis</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.
