Shaw and Partners’ Head of IT Steven De Vries raises $10,145 for Cancer Council Foundation23 Aug 2019

On Saturday 17th of August 2019, Shaw and Partners’ Head of IT Steven De Vries and co-pilot Anthony Agnello partook in the annual Mystery Box Rally, driving a Shaw and Partners branded 1993 VR Holden Commodore; raising funds for the Cancer Council. 

 

The Mystery Box Rally is an annual event dedicated to raising much needed funds in support of cancer research. It requires participants to drive their own 25+ year old cars along a mystery route in a unique five day challenge. The route is a loop starting and finishing at the same location, but all the other details are kept under wraps, only given to the teams each morning.

 

This year the rally saw 187 cars and 376 participants driving over 2,000km from Byron Bay to the Currawinya National Park and back, via some of the most formidable roads and remote communities in Australia.

 

Steve and Anthony personally raised $8,145 through family, friends and colleagues and were able to make a total donation of $10,145 to Cancer Council with an additional $2,000 donation from the Shaw and Partners Foundation.

 

Since 2009 the Mystery Box Rally has raised over $20 million! It is one of the largest fundraising events for Cancer Council in Australia.
