Our Story …

Wynnum Wombats are doing the Mystery Box Rally in August 2019 to support the Cancer Council and are raising funds to fight Melanoma.

Too many young Aussies are being diagnosed with Melanomas and while early detection can prevent them from spreading, more research needs to be done. Support the Wynnum Wombats - Dig Deep and help wipe out the deadly skin cancer that is Melanoma!

We are doing this drive for Dave Rogers (Granddad), Ross Worrall (Dad), Uncle Big Mark Bishop - all who have been taken by cancer before their time, along with our friends and family that have had to deal with and survived a melanoma (Ryan, Amber, Suzan and Scott).

Thanks for your support, Scott and Jay.

NASTY CANCER FACTS Approximately, two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70, and Melanomas represent 10.4% of all new cancer cases diagnosed in 2018. 53,215 people were living with melanoma skin cancer at the end of 2013 (diagnosed in the 5 year period 2009 to 2013) .

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.
