Matthew and Alex Tenkate are excited to announce our participation in the 2016 Mystery Box Rally, an event from the organisers of the Cancer Council’s biggest private fundraiser, Sh**box Rally. Departing from Adelaide on 24th September 2016, we will be one of 150 teams of fundraisers who will embark on an unforgettable five-day adventure. A light-hearted approach to a serious cause, Mystery Box will take us along a mysterious route to quintessential outback towns, remote dirt tracks and surprise river crossings, all while raising much-needed funds for cancer research and prevention.
Major Senior aka Alex and I; are forming the team Major Carnage. By day we are the founder and General Manager of the long established RTO Major Training Group and have been trusted in the industry for over 20 years. With a ‘make it happen’ attitude in business and personal lives the Mystery box Rally won’t be any different.
Along with 300 other participants, we will receive the day’s route just before we head off each morning, camping overnight in often remote outback locations. This trip is not about creature comforts but it will be an amazing experience. Each night of the rally is spent camping, therefore we will need to bring own camping gear & take on the outback. What is exciting is that we have no prior knowledge of the route or the destination, or, in fact, the vehicle that will take us there. Our only knowledge is that five days later we’ll be back in Adelaide having driven along some of Australian’s most deserted and scenic roads. We’re taking a giant leap of faith out of our comfort zones with nothing but our personal essentials, for a cause that is very important to us both.

Whist the rally is while away we have already raised $1,222.50 however our goal is to raise a minimum of $5,000 & any donations we raise will go towards Cancer Council research initiatives.
- A minimum of 51% of total funds raised will go to Cancer Council.
- Aim to reach 80% of funds raised going to Cancer Council.
- The remaining 20% goes towards covering the costs of organising and running the rally.
“We are doing this in wonderful memory of Noelene; wife and mother of two who gave it her all in life” says Alex.
Matthew adds, “We are extremely proud to get behind an excellent cause and create lasting memories along the way”.
Manheim, Australia’s leading car auction company, source 150 vehicles that teams will bid on at the private auction the night before departure. As the first mystery to the journey, cars are unveiled one at a time without teams ever seeing or driving them beforehand. Teams have spent months fundraising for the chance to be a part of the challenge with a $3,000 minimum charity donation needed to get involved. The more they’ve raised, the higher the chance of acquiring their dream mystery box at auction for their voyage, with all funds raised going towards vital Cancer Council research initiatives.
