Swan Ignition Coils supports The Bonobos who are participating in the Shitbox Rally, raising money for Cancer research.

Swan Ignition Coils is proud to be part supporting The Bonobos who are participating in the annual Shitbox Rally event that raises money and awareness for the important work the Cancer Council carries out. The rally is run between 19th to May 25th and travels 38000 km from Brisbane to Darwin and is officially endorsed by the Cancer Council. In its ninth year the rally was founded by James Freeman after he experienced a family tragedy due to cancer, so all the money raised goes towards vital cancer research to fight the disease and hopefully one day no other person will be affected by the disease.

The events focus on mates coming together for an adventure of a life time, toughing out the hash Australian terrain all for a great cause.

In the rally we are supporting team The Bonobos and their 1982 Mercedes Benz 280se, they are one of over 200 team entrants and supporting vehicles that will brave the gruelling terrain. It’s difficult enough for a well kept modern car to make the distance, let alone a “shitbox” worth just over a $1000.Jeremy Gumley and Lucas McAuley make up team Bonobos, last year their car survived, completing the distance and helped raise over $8000.

This year Swan Ignition Coils is jumping on board with our support in an effort to help Team Bonobos beat last year’s figure. Jeremy and Lucas are organising various fundraising events to raise money, you can show your support for the Shit Box Charity rally and The Bonobos via their donation page or search Facebook, “The Bonobos”.

Amongst other donations, to help the team raise money we offered to donate a set of Swan Ignition Coils to be auctioned during a charity event.
