Father & Son combo, Tim and Will Chambers, are really happy to announce that we're taking part in the 2022 Mystery Box Rally!
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 Will's beloved and rare 1996 Ford Falcon Panel Van across some of South Australia's harshest outback roads. We will do approximately 2,500kms in 5 days (excluding the 3-day, 2200km drive to get to the start line!)
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. Last year my team were thrilled to raise more than $15,000, and we would very much appreciate it if you could donate to the cause & help us smash last year's total!
We would be delighted to share the full breakdown of all the Cancer Council Australia grants which in 2021 received $2,600,000 from Box Rallies fundraising efforts through 2019-2020. This is what it's all about!
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.
In the past 12 years, over 29 million dollars has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
