The Shitbox Rally 2019
At Arcadium HQ we are grateful to be deeply ingrained in our community. Even our name, ‘Arcadia’, means ‘a place of refuge’ in ancient Greek mythology and every day we aim for Arcadum HQ to be a place where our team, clients and friends can join together as a community and support eachother.
That’s why, when our friend, Amanda Bradbury, came to us for the second year in a row asking for our help as she once again participates in the ultimate cross-country rally, the Shitbox Rally, we were quick to jump on board to support her with a donation of $1000.
The Shitbox Rally is a bi-annual rally which challenges teams to drive cars worth less than $1000 across the country from Perth to Sydney via Uluru on some of Australia’s most challenging roads, all to raise money for The Cancer Council.
As many people know, I (Marley) lost my own mother to cancer last year, so the Cancer Council and all the wonderful things it does is something close to my heart and I take great pride in supporting the Shitbox Rally. It’s also a lot of fun!
This year, Amanda and her teammate, Heather Ferrier, are racing for a close family friend Bobby, her cousin Tracey and my amazing mother, Danielle. All three names have been given pride of place on their shitbox rally car this year.
The team aim to raise as much money as possible for the Cancer Council, hoping to find a cure to the disease as well as to face the difficulties and hardships of the rally in admiration of the difficulties and hardships people with cancer face.
If you’re keen to support Amanda and Heather’s journey, which began on Wednesday 8 May and will finish in Sydney on Friday 17 May you can read more about it and donate here.
