Captain Sir Tom Moore’s simple message of hope – “tomorrow will be a good day” –has inspired and brought comfort to millions of people during the pandemic. Last year, Captain Tom set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes and, one hundred laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal.
Friday 30 April would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday and to celebrate his life, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun, The Captain Tom Foundation is inviting everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take part in the Captain Tom 100.
The idea is simple. Take on a challenge based around the number 100. Just decide on your 100 challenge and complete it on Friday 30 April or continue the challenge at home right through to Monday 3 May. It could be to read 100 pages in a book, give 100 compliments, run 100 metres, learn to count to 100 or solve maths problems to do with the number 100. Raise money for The Captain Tom Foundation or your chosen good cause, or just do your Captain Tom 100 challenge for fun!
