Captain Tom 100

Friday 30th April 2021 would have been Captain Sir Tom Moore’s 101st birthday and the one-year anniversary of the extraordinary celebrations following the conclusion of his famous 100 laps of his garden that raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS. Tom’s simple message of hope – ‘Tomorrow will be a good day’ – resonated around the globe during some of the darkest days of the pandemic, bringing light and comfort to millions worldwide.

Captain Sir Tom’s family have pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone in the UK and around the world, could get involved in to celebrate Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the hope and joy he brought to millions and his sense of fun.

That event is the Captain Tom 100.

How do I get involved?

Everyone – of all ages and abilities – is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100 anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend, starting on Friday 30th April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May.
You could walk 100 steps or run 100 metres, score 100 goals, bake 100 cakes, climb 100 flights of stairs, hop 100 laps of the garden, build 100 sandcastles, absolutely anything at all, inside or outside.

So dream up your Captain Tom 100, fundraise or donate to The Tom Bowdidge Youth Cancer Foundation and share your 100 challenge on social media using #CaptainTom100.
