Sh#t Box Rally 2014-2015, 2019
Yes, there is a car rally called the Sh#t Box Rally and participants are required to drive cars worth $1000 or less for very long distances for days on end through remote areas of Australia. This event supports the work of Cancer Council. Steve Cunningham participated in the 2014 and 2018 events and in 2019 Trisha Cashmere took the helm, raising over $27,000 in one year. In all our teams have raised over $50,000, and in it’s 10 year history, the event has raised over $20 million.
Cancer effects many Australians in increasing numbers. No one is immune, not children, not mothers. Anything we can do to help, we will. Even if it means that we have to let Steve or Trish go roaring around the countryside for a week at a time.
Trisha is participating in 2020 with her Dad. If you would like to support their efforts, donate here.
NRL Touch Football
This year the team at The Healthy Body Company have been privileged to be involved in the inaugural NRL Touch Football Premiership. The team have supported the Parramatta Eels, West Tigers and Newcastle Knights across the 3 rounds played in NSW. It’s been a great experience for the team who have been involved with Touch football for the past 20 years now and are looking forward to the next exciting chapter in the sport.

Italian National Canoe Slalom Team
During January and February 2016 Jude and the team at The Healthy Body Company have been looking after the Italian National Canoe Slalom Team, who have been here at Jordan Springs preparing for the Rio Olympic Games as well as competing at the Australian Open and the Oceania Championship. The team competes in the C1, C2 and K1 classes.
We would like to wish the whole team the best of luck in their training and competition. If you’d like to go check them out they will be competing in the 2016 Canoe Slalom Oceania Championships at Penrith White-water Stadium from the 19th to the 21st.
Slick Chicks do Coastrek for the Fred Hollows Foundation
Did you ever hear the joke about the lawyer, the accountant, the IT nerd and the branding consultant?
They decided that walking 100k to raise money to save the sight of thousands of people in disadvantaged communities was a good idea. And it was. They raised over $17,000. They just were not factoring in the long term injuries that result.
Penrith Junior Cricket Association
Penrith Junior Cricket Association is the representative association for talented players in the Penrith region. We are proud to be sponsors every season. As part of our sponsorship Jude Holroyd ran a session for the U15 team. It is fantastic to see such talented and motivated young people striving hard in our region.
Western Sydney Marathon
The Western Sydney Marathon is an annual running festival held at Penrith Lakes. Athletes of all levels compete in 42.2, 21.1, 10 and 5 kilometre events. This year we were really excited to be involved.
In addition to providing lots of fantastic information to assist local athletes to prepare including info on nutrition, stretching, race tips, we also had the talented Karen Busby write a diary that followed her progress as she trained for the event. We were also there on the day, patching up those for whom the hot day was more challenging than they hoped, and serving iceblocks and fudge.
