Shitbox Rally 2020 Spring will travel from Mackay (QLD) to Darwin (NT) this October

Look out Mackay, Darwin and towns in-between – 550 people in crazy cars are headed your way this October for Shitbox Rally 2020 Spring. 
Shitbox Rally is Cancer Council’s biggest independent fundraiser with the 2020 Spring rally goal set to $2 million with overall funds since the rallies began in 2009 reaching $22 million and funding ground-breaking cancer research projects. 
It’s not a race and vehicles must be worth less than $1,000. There are plenty of prizes for the biggest fundraiser, best dress up, craziest looking car and more.
Teams of two in 275 cars plan to leave Mackay, Queensland on Saturday the 10th of October. After seven days of driving almost 3,500kms on dusty, dirty, mostly unsealed roads with six stopovers in remote locations, they will cross the finish line in Darwin on Friday the 16th of October. 
James Freeman founded Box Rallies (Shitbox and Mystery Box Rally) after losing both parents to cancer within 12 months. 
“The route for the Spring Rally will take us through parts of remote outback Australia, so we can add revenue back into the community,” James said.
“We will drive up the middle of the Great Dividing Range and a reasonable way up Cape York Peninsula before heading West. This route will feature a lot of wild, heavily varied terrain, plenty of bull dust, plenty of river crossings and is definitely not for the faint of heart.”  
Many participants have been affected by cancer in one way or another. The rally not only wants to raise awareness and money for Cancer Council, but also wants to offer support and a friendly ear to those that have suffered or are suffering.
