Mister Lucky

Sponsor a Mile for Mister Lucky

Mister Lucky is hitting the high seas once again to take on the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.

We want to turn this year's race into a tremendous source of opportunity for people with disability, and to do that we are challenging our supporters to put their Captain's hats on and do a little guesswork.

We want you to guess how many nautical miles we will clock by the time we cross the finish line in Hobart.

The closest guess will WIN an annual membership to the yacht club, sports club, or supporters club of the winner's choice (to the value of $1,000), or $800 in cash.

If you wish to donate without being part of the competition, any amount will be greatly appreciated.

All proceeds will go towards funding the resources and support services needed to help people with disability flourish in their daily lives.
