Stone Real Estate are happy to announce that we're fielding a team in the Mystery Box Rally in 2020, to raise much needed money for cancer research!
Our general manager, Jamie Bennett and head of training and auctions, Peter Malouf, will form the Stone team.
Mystery Box Rally is one of the largest community fundraising events for the Cancer Council in Australia, having raised over $4.5 million in the last 8 years.
Part of the requirements for our participation is to raise a minimum of $5000 ...but we're aiming to raise well above this amount.
Why do we want to raise more?
Because cancer patients and those around them feel powerless to change or help the situation, so funds are desperately needed for ongoing research to make better medicines and medical equipment, to fund treatment clinics and the support of patients and to hopefully find a cure.
All money raised will go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our small part to support such a worthy charity.
Fundraising is the hardest part so any donation you can give - whether it's $10, $100 or $1000, is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below. And thanks for your support and well wishes, it really does mean a lot to us.

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:
