Our Story …

We are really happy to announce that we're taking part in Mystery Box Rally in 2019!!

We've been talking about being part of this adventure for too long. This year we're doing it!

We are Neil and Greg, mates since.. well lets just say there's been plenty of shenanigans! Unfortunately both our families have felt the affect from losing loved ones to cancer. As rally Virgins we're both excited and just a little bit 'shitting ourselves' with what lies ahead.

Our commitment to the rally is in memory of Delma, Avis, Cliff and Gary also to Craig for the battle ahead..stay strong buddy!!

Mystery Box Rally is one of the largest community lead fundraising events for the Cancer Council in Australia having raised over $3.5 million in the last 6 years. Part of the requirements for our participation is to raise a minimum of $3,500 but we hope to raise well above this amount. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. They do some awesome work supporting people with cancer, and funding important research. Fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

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."

Hi all, well its suddenly getting very real, down to the last few days.

We have reached our donation target which guarantees we're on the start line!

BIG BIG THANK YOU to all those who have generously donated to the Cancer Council..to date the total money raised is $935,321.00 which is 94% of the targeted $1,000,000.00.. its very close but we must still celebrate the fact this year surpasses last years fundraising Woo Hoo!!

Team Double Trouble will be a member of a 'buddy' group of 7, so well be traveling in convoy to help each other out and lots of shenanigans!

We've put a tonne of work into the 'THINGAMOBILE' so we've got a pretty good chance of completing the rally without breakdown..fingers crossed!

We will leave the Sunshine Coast on Friday morning and arrive in Byron Bay in good time to meet the other rally entrants with the briefing at 4pm.

Saturday is an early start to..well that's the mystery! but we have packed expecting some shiver cold nights and fresh mornings!!

Team Double Trouble..Thing 1 and Thing 2 are excited and ready to roll...to infinity and beyond...to the thingamobile fellow crusader.. ummm wrong story lines....'Why fit in when you where born to stand out'...cheers Greg n Neil!!

Mystery Box Rally 2019 done n dusted! Terrific Rally and lots of fun, not without a few car issues though, however the 'thingamobile' made it across the line and got us home.As expected the roads where challenging, rough n dusty, and nights where chilly with a -5 in Glenn Innes apparently..Our 'We Give' target was $3,500.00 and to date its $3,800.00 so a huge THANK YOU to everyone for your kind and generous donations to the Cancer Council.The Rally target was $1,000,000.00 and to date its $1,019,073.00 that's a massive jump from last years MBR so congrats to Box Rallies and I'm sure Cancer Council and Cancer Research will benefit from this huge funding injection.So onward to MBR 2020 where the rally starts in Rockhampton with no date set yet...and yes were planning already....

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 $13 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.
