We are really happy to announce that we're taking part in Mystery Box Rally in 2024!!
The rally is an event we have always wanted to participate in to be able to help raise funds for the cancer council. It is something very close to our hearts with my grandfather dying of cancer, a close friend currently going through the stages of breast cancer and my 6 year old daughters best friend now going through her second round of cancer.
This rally will have dad and I driving our 30 year old Toyota hilux along outback roads for approximately 2,500kms over 5 days. We set off from Airlie Beach & return to Airlie Beach 5 days later, each day in between is going to be a mystery, we have no idea where we will be headed until just before departure the next morning.
In order for us to participate we need to raise $4,000 and every dollar raised goes to Cancer Council. We would very much appreciate it if you could donate to the cause & 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.
