We (Andy and Kat) are very excited to announce that we will be taking part in the Mystery Box Rally in 2020!!
We will be driving a car 25 years or older along a mystery loop from Rockhampton for 5 days all in the name of cancer research!
We all know someone who has survived, who is currently fighting and who have lost their battles with the big C. As some of you may know we lost our legend of a mum Martha to secondary breast cancer back in 2005. We also lost our dear family friend Tara last year to triple negative breast cancer. We also have a survivor in our circle, our sweet Aunty Lil.
Why are we doing this rally?
To raise vital funds for the amazing charity The Cancer Council in the hope to create a Cancer free future.
The Cancer Council is the only charity in Australia to work across every area of every cancer, from research to prevention and support. They help people from the point of diagnosis through to treatment and survivorship.
Through the Cancer Council we hope to create much more awareness of prevention and early detection. We want everyone young and old to check themselves and understand what is normal for your body. One in two Queenslanders alone will develop cancer before the age of 85. However treatments can be more successful when cancer is found early.
We can't wait to take part in this incredible adventure but for us to do so, we must raise $3,500 to enter but are hoping to raise much more then that. Any donation no matter how big or small is immensely appreciated.

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.
Over $20 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
