Our Story …

Matt and I are excited to announce that we're taking part in Mystery Box Rally in August 2019!! It means that we will do a road trip in a car older than 25 years. We head out from Byron Bay and return 4 days later, and where we go in between is a mystery! We will be sleeping out under the stars, travelling in convoy with other teams, and hopefully making it back without breaking down. Have a look at the video on this page to see what it will be like.

We haven't yet found a suitable vehicle in which to do the rally, but we are working on it and will add the pic to this page / our blog when we get one.

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. Matt and I have been very fortunate that cancer hasn't affected our family like it has so many others, but that doesn't mean we aren't acutely aware of the need to raise funds for research and support. What an engaging way to help contribute to a much needed charity.

Fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated (over $2 is tax deductible and you will receive a receipt as soon as the transaction is complete - just scroll down to the 'DONATE NOW' tab). Keep an eye out on this page as we will update with our preparation progress etc.

Thanks in advance for any support you can give us, by donating.

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.
