Captain Tom 100

Last April, Captain Tom Moore walked 100 laps of his garden to raise funds for the NHS, and raised an incredible £38.9 million.

To mark what would have been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday and celebrate his amazing achievements, we are all invited to take part in the Captain Tom Moore 100 Challenge. Choose your 100 challenge in his memory and fundraise to give hope to children facing cancer.

What is the Captain Tom 100?

Everyone is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100 anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend. It’s so simple.

Simply think up your 100 challenge, it can be anything you like from walking 100 metres, baking 100 cakes, 100 keepy-uppies, skip for 100 minutes or juggling for 100 seconds. The choice is yours!
