Lisa Johnson and Belinda Rowe, a.k.a the Buxom Motor Wenches, are tackling some of the most arduous driving conditions in Australia in a bid to raise much needed funds for cancer research.
“Our husbands walked the Kokoda track for charity a few years back and it’s now time for us girls to have an adventure of our own.” said Lisa “We get the opportunity to fundraise for a great charity,
The Cancer Council, and have a little fun along the way too!”
The iconic Shitbox Rally, now in its 8th year, has become a major fund-raising challenge for the Cancer Council. This year 450 participants will attempt to drive 3,800 kilometres from Adelaide to Cairns on some of the toughest roads imaginable including the Oodnadatta Track and Plenty Highway. If that’s not challenge enough, participants have to undertake the drive in a car worth less than $1,000 ……or in other words, a shitbox.
“We found our shitbox just last week” says Belinda “We’re working hard to get it roadworthy and registered in time for the rally, calling on favours from friends and family”
Lisa and Belinda have 8 kids between them and have told their husbands that they will need to be on babysitting duties during Rally week from 27th May – 2nd June. Both Mums have lost someone close to them from cancer and are passionate about supporting the cause.
