Captain Tom 100

On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes. One hundred laps later, he'd raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal.

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, The Captain Tom Foundation would love everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take part in 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.

  • Think up your 100 challenge. It can be anything you like – from walking 100 metres to baking 100 cakes or writing 100 letters
  • Take on your 100 any time between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May
  • Fundraise or donate to the charity of your choice or The Captain Tom Foundation
  • Share your 100 on social media using #CaptainTom100

Whether you're doing 100 keepy-uppies, walking 100 steps on your hands or telling 100 jokes, you'll be helping charities and the vulnerable people they support when they need it most.

Encourage your family and friends to take up the challenge and together we'll ensure Captain Tom's legacy lives on.
