Wardie and the mighty EA Falcon are returning for Mystery Box #19. After taking part in MB18 and assisting with raising much needed funds for the Cancer Council I've decided to up the ante and have another crack. Being a melanoma survivor (25 years) and having three other family members survive melanoma, bowel cancer and cancer of the spleen it is a cause that is close to my heart. The more money that is raised for cancer research, the more folks will survive - it is as simple as that. For 20+ years I was involved in raising funds for leukaemia and stem cell research in a management capacity for the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic, but since moving to Tassie I've decided broaden my horizons and get down and dirty with the Mystery Box gang. Last year MB18 raised just over $800,000. This year we are aiming for the magic million. Please support me by donating to this fabulous event and follow our progress on Facebook in August when we hit the tracks for another round of dirt, mud, dust and mayhem! Cheers, Andrew
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.
Over $13 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
