Hey Guys, We are Scott and Kierra and we are team Unicorns and we are really happy to announce that we're taking part in Mystery Box Rally in 2019! We had so much fun last year that we decided to go again, and thought what better way to spend my birthday week getting lost in the outback. Raising money for the Cancer Council is an honour that we both strive to do our best. But we also have the passion and drive to raise awareness for a cause that is close to our hearts and where our team name comes from The Unicorn Foundation. This foundation works with patients and families that are touched by a rare cancer Neuroendocrine Tumors that are a slow growing tumor that attacks the endocrine system. We unfortunately lost Scott’s mother to this horrible disease last year just before we left to go on the rally. So here we are back again and these two crazy unicorns will be ready for another adventure. Last year we raised $4,500 for the Cancer Council we would love to read the goal of $6,000 by August when we set off on the adventure. 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.

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."
