Rally good cause

FATHER and son team, John and David Hattam from Meeniyan have decided to enter the Mystery Box Rally, a different and somewhat crazy way to raise funds for cancer research.
The pair need to raise $3000 in order to enter the event and started off with a big hole golf day at the Meeniyan Golf course on Sunday.
Golfers had an extra large hole to aim for, but were challenged on the green with mystery putting items.
Fifty people entered the event, which was a great start for John and David’s (Team DJ) fundraising efforts. The amount raised by Team DJ is the amount they have to bid on a car for the rally.
The rally is held in November, departing from Sydney for five days on an unknown route.
Mystery Box takes care of finding the cars, making sure they are registered, roadworthy and ready for to bid on and buy at a private auction the night before the rally departs.
One car will be presented at a time. Participants won’t know what cars are coming out and will have never seen them before, had a chance to look over them or under the bonnet.
On the morning of each day, teams will be given that day’s route and destination.
It is a true mystery challenge.
“I lost my mother and father in law to cancer and we have known a lot of other people who have been affected by the disease,” John said.
“The Mystery Box Rally will be a different and fun way to raise funds for cancer research.”
Between now and November, John and David will be hosting events and running raffles in order to raise funds for the rally.
