Our Story …

We are extremely excited to announce our participation in the 2019 Mystery Box Rally.

This event run by Box Rallies in conjunction with The Cancer Council Australia is a 5 day road trip through highly challenging mystery terrain starting and ending in Byron Bay. Easy right? Incorrect. The catch is the car must be at least 25 years old. Now I don’t know about you but we both had a lot less miles on us 25 years ago, the same goes for cars.

So we bought ourselves a pretty schmick looking '94 Toyota Tarago and soon found out that we were sold a lemon. After a long stint at the mechanics she's now ready to go and hopefully she'll last 5 days of pounding over corrugated dirt desert roads.

We're looking to raise as much as possible for the Cancer Council so we ask that you dig as deep as you can and support an incredible cause. Cheers, Joel & Gregor

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."

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.
