Our Story …

We, Gus and Bill, the Doszpot brothers, are teaming up to join the Rally in 2020 to raise more funds to support the awesome work the Cancer Council does helping people with cancer, and enabling important research. This event is the largest community led fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia

Sadly, we’ve seen more than our share of cancer hitting our circles, with our mum, sister and nephew all having beaten cancer. Our eldest brother, Steve was taken in 2017, and our brother in law, Sebastian and Gus’s mother in law, Louise lost their cancer battles some years before. There are also several friends who are or have been affected by this insidious disease. Steve’s passing is still deeply felt, and his public crusade to raise awareness of liver cancer and encourage people at risk to have checks has had an impact on many.

The rally is over five days driving in a loop from Rockhampton to Rockhampton, and we won’t know where we’ll be going in between, we’ll be covering about 2500 kilometres with all the other details kept under wraps, and only given to the teams each morning. We do expect dirt roads, dust and heat, driving along a mystery route in this 5 day challenge, all in the name of cancer research. We also have to have our own 25+ year old car to participate, and we’ll probably take a little 1991 Toyota Seca (without air conditioning !!!) - a noble survivor of the 2019 rally.

It’s an extremely worthy cause, and it should be lots of fun for a couple of siblings.

To join the rally, we, like all teams, need to raise at least $3500 so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated

You’ll be able to follow our progress via this page, and maybe even our Facebook pages.

In memory of Steve Doszpot, Sebastian Hollai, and Louise Boros

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."

Thanks for your support, Mary and Trevor. Hopefully the rally will go ahead this year - with COVID and the closed borders it's still unsure. If not, we'll be rolling over into next year..

Have a great time together Gus and Bill, Maybe it won't be re-living your childhood spending all this time driving an old car together on unknown roads, on an unknown route and for now, still at an unknown time, but it will be great and you'll be helping a very worthwhile cause!!

Thanks so much for your continued support, Maureen. It's very good of you. Last year, I rallied with my son, Neil, and this year I'm going with my brother, Bill - so it's still a family effort. We really appreciate your help for this worthy cause - raising funds for the Cancer Council.

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 $20 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.
