Previously we took part in a Shitbox Rally. It was an incredible experience, but what we are most pleased with is what we raised for cancer research...in all $22,000.
Our contribution is not over and we want to continue the fight against cancer by continuing our fundraising efforts. We are really pleased to announce we have signed up to Second Shot Shitbox! Second shot is just that, a way for past rally teams to get back into the rally, but most importantly for us to continue fundraising.
The top 5 fundraising teams get a guaranteed spot back in the rally and yes, that is certainly our objective so all donations are greatly appreciated. The donations go straight to the Cancer Council but the amounts are noted against our team. If we don’t make the top 5 and don’t get into the current Shitbox the funds raised will still help us get into the following year and all funds still go directly to the Cancer Council.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now celebrating its 10th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the $2m target set for this year. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity and over the past 10 years we have raised $15m. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.
It’s all about the fundraising. Every dollar raised goes to the Cancer Council and these funds are used only in cancer research.
The recurring statements we get from our researchers is that every dollar counts. Every dollar is invested and used very well by our researchers with the only limitation on the research conducted is the funds we are able to raise.
We are the coalface; we are the ones that make the difference. Without your donations and our fundraising we would not be able to invest into research and without that research there are no breakthroughs, discoveries, advancements.
Second Shot Shitbox is purely about the fundraising. At the end there may be a chance for our team to get onto Shitbox Rally and raise more funds, but for now, or focus is purely on raising funds for cancer research and we hope you will help us where and however you can.
