Welcome Sh*tbox Rally at the Park

Many of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. Whether it be parents, family, close friends, people we know or ourselves that have battled or are battling cancer, this awful disease has touched us all. 

In it's 10th anniversary, the Shitbox Rally will leave Optus Stadium in Perth again to travel over 5,000 kilometres over ten days and finish at Centennial Park on Friday May 17.

This is not just a chance to raise awareness and money for the Cancer Council, but also offer support and a friendly ear to those that have suffered or are suffering.

An adventure through formidable roads

A convoy of 275 cars and 550 people will rev the engines of cars worth less than $1,000, for this epic Aussie adventure across four states. Some cars will make it, some won’t. 

Shitbox Rally is the largest independent fundraiser for Cancer Council nationally with over $18 million raised to date and it broke records in 2018 raising $1.97 million. 2019 has a target of $2 million which has been exceeded already with $2.27 million to date.

Welcome them at Centennial Park

James Freeman who founded Box Rallies (Shitbox Rally and Mystery Box Rally) after both of his parents died
from cancer within 12 months of each other, said “This being the 10th Shitbox Rally in Australia I felt celebrating
those 10 years with a day for each rally was appropriate.

Also, spanning the width of this magnificent country is a great celebration of the Outback, it’s communities and the fundraising teams in the rally. It will indeed be a celebration of achievement for the last decade.”

Centennial Parklands has supported James Freeman and the Shitbox Rally from the very beginning and will once again welcome the families, friends, supporters and participants who embark on this memorable and crazy adventure.
