Car Rally heading to Innamincka, SA for overnight stopover will help save Races.
“The Mystery Box Rally staying over night at the racetrack is exactly what this town needs to save our iconic yearly Horse Race”
Clinton from The Innamincka Sporting Club said that they have struggled for the last few years to put on the races and it would be a real shame for them to stop. When we received the call from Mystery Box Rally we were thrilled, as these types of events can inject much needed funds into the community and will help save our race day.”
Mystery Box Rally – the smaller, yet equally crazy brother of Shitbox Rally will see 150 teams of two convoy 25+ year old cars, with each day’s course only released at the start of every morning.
On Saturday 20thOctober over 300 people left Mildura on a five-day driving adventure all in the name of raising money for Cancer Council. They travelled north via Milparinka and will stop over night in Innaminka on Sunday 21stOctober.
Box Rallies has generated over $15,594,000 to cancer research plus media awareness for Cancer Council – helping the lives of millions of Australians who are facing their unknown journeys.
This includes contributions to HPV virus research which had huge media announcements last week predicting that Australia is set to eliminate cervical cancer by 2035. This is a testament to the hard work rally participants do to raise needed funds for research projects.
Lyndsey Rice, Director of Fundraising, Cancer Council, NSW said: “Following the success of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccination program and the changes to the National Cervical Screening Program, we are on track to being the first country in the world to achieve this. New research you have supported is being presented at the International Papilloma Virus Conference in Sydney this week and shows that if vaccination and screening coverage are maintained at their current rates, cervical cancer is likely to be eliminated as a public health issue within 20 years.”
With a fundraising goal of $850k, this year’s rally is not far off having just ticked over $764,000
Founder James Freeman adds:
“Cancer is one of the scariest personal journeys someone can embark on. It takes a brave soul and the full support of family and friends to overcome not knowing how it’ll turn out. Which is why we intentionally created an element of mystery to this rally,”
Mystery Box Rally, while a journey with a very clear mission, is just as much about having fun, creating great stories with mates and pushing personal limits.
