We're Amelia (Minna) Tanner & Samantha (Jay) Myers!
We've created this page because we want to make a difference.
We're inspired by the work of Cancer Council NSW and wanted to support them by raising money as part of our participation in Shitbox Rally AU 2017.
The work that The Cancer Council does to help fund life changing research projects is absolutley amazing. To think that we now have a vaccine for Cervical cancer is beyond amazing and we want to help make sure their incredible work continues.
Cancer Council NSW is committed to research as key to understanding the causes of, and developing treatments for, cancer. Over the last 15 years, they have provided more than $120 million in funding to support research, making us them largest non-government funder of cancer research in NSW.
With your help and super generous support, we can make cancer a thing of the past!
For those of you who don't know - Shitbox Rally is not a race, rather a challenge to achieve the unthinkable; to drive cars worth $1,000 across Australia via some of its most arduous roads, all in the name of charity. It's also a charity full endorsed and officifally supported by the Cancer Council.
From May 27th to June 2nd 2017, we'll be driving in our shit-box car from Adelaide to Cairns via the Oodnadatta Track & Plenty Highway. Its going to be tough, tiring and very very dusty.
Many of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. Whether it be parents, family, close friends, people we know or ourselves that have battled or are battling cancer, this all too common and the horrid disease has touched us all. We not only want to raise awareness and money for the Cancer Council, but we want to be able to offer support and a friendly ear to those that have suffered or are suffering.
Majority of the funds raised will be go directly to our Shit-box campaign for the Cancer Council, with a small amout of it going to cover some of our costs like the purchase of our very own shit-box!
We need an absolute bare minimum of $4000, but our ultimate goal is to hit $20,000!
Any donation, no matter how small is going to help!!!
If you're interested in offically sponsoring us - which will include your logo on the bonnet or doors of our car, exclusive content about our trip featuring your branding and our undying grattidute, you can do so for $515. Please reach out to us directly to arrange.
We will also be holding some fundraising events in Sydney between now and the start of the rally - so keep an eye out on facebook and please like our page ot stay up to date with our progress!
Our team name is The Ex-Pensive Winos - a nod to our affection for Keith Richards, our love of wine, and the theme of our team which will become evident soon enough!
Please help me help by giving whatever you can. The more people that know about Cancer Council NSW, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot to us!
