Celebrate Captain Tom’s amazing achievements in a special event over his birthday weekend. We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge from Friday 30 April to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May 2021 to celebrate Captain Sir Tom Moore’s amazing achievements and raise vital funds for Teesside Hospice.
Friday 30th April would have been Captain Sir Tom’s 101st birthday and is the one-year anniversary of the extraordinary celebrations that followed the conclusion of his fundraising walk that raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS.
Celebrate his life
Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since Captain Sir Tom’s death on 2 February this year, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone around the world could get involved in to celebrate his generosity, hope and sense of fun, this is what the Captain Tom 100 challenge embodies.
All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100 – an activity of your choice based around the numbers 100 – and do it any time and anywhere from Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.
Your 100 could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or outside. It’s your chance to do it your way!
Fundraise or donate
Once you’ve decided what you’re doing, you can fundraise or donate to Teesside Hospice and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100
We hope you’ll join the thousands of people around the world taking part in Captain Tom 100 and spread his message of hope while raising much-needed funds for Teesside Hospice.
On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes, with an initial fundraising target of £1000. One hundred laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal & instantly became a worldwide inspiration.
His simple message of hope – “Tomorrow will be a good day” – inspired millions around the world and brought comfort and joy to so many during the pandemic.
Now it’s your turn to build on that legacy. Friday 30 April would have been his 101st birthday and to honour him and his amazing achievements, we would love everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take part in the Captain Tom 100.
Everyone is encouraged to take on their own challenge around the number 100 anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend (Friday 30th April – Monday 3rd May 2021)
