Bloody hell, are we really doing this? We are taking part in Mystery Box Rally in 2022!!
Mystery Box Rally is one of the largest community lead fundraising events for the Cancer Council in Australia having raised over $5.5 million in the last 10 years. This rally will have us driving a 26 year old XH Falcon Ute along outback roads. We will do approximately 2,500kms in 5 days.
We set off from Port Lincoln & return to Port Lincoln 5 days later, each day in between is a mystery, we have no idea where we will be headed until just before departure the next morning. In order for us to participate we need to raise $4,000 and every dollar raised goes to the Cancer Council.
It should be a lot of fun and given the car we are travelling in we are sure it will test our mechanical knowledge (or lack of it). More importantly, for us it is a small contribution we can make to support many of our family and friends who have suffered or continue to suffer from this terrible disease, it is also an opportunity for us to remember and honour loved ones that have succumbed to this disease.
We would very much appreciate it if you could donate to the cause & help us on our journey!
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.
