Heaven Can Wait 2011 virtual race: Still time to win!!

Although the on-water edition of the Heaven Can Wait 2011 charity yacht race ended on Sunday a week ago much to the relief of cold, rain-soaked and weary competitors -- fundraising for the 'virtual' race is continuing apace. The virtual race still has another week to run!!

Already since the race ended, an extra $9,000 has been donated, including an additional $1000 to virtual race leader Granny Jen, and $1500 to third-placed Windchaser.

With some cash donations and additional entry fees still to be added, Heaven Can Wait 2011 has already raised more than $34,000 in donations -- well on the way to beating the 2010 total of $40,000.

As in past years, all money raised through the Heaven Can Wait charity yacht race, held each year during the October Long Weekend on Lake Macquarie, just south of Newcastle, NSW, goes to the Cancer Council NSW for men's cancer support and research programs, along with up to $5000 to Marine Rescue NSW which provides on-water support services.

'We are delighted with how fundraising for this year's event has gone,' said Shaun Lewicki, Heaven Can Wait Yacht Club commodore.

'This year's results, and the ongoing rate of donations in the days following the race certainly bodes well for fundraising for Heaven Can Wait 2012,' he said.

Donations for this year's event can be made by going to www.heavencanwait.com.au, and clicking on the large 'DONATE HERE' button on the front page.

Clicking on a boat's name brings up a donation page, with all donations going through a secure online e-commerce system.
