Captain Tom 100 Challenge
100 laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal. 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.
Now it’s our turn to build on his legacy. Friday 30 April would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday. To honour him and his amazing achievements, The Captain Tom Foundation are asking people of all ages and abilities to take part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge.
How can I take part?
All you need to do is think up an activity based around the number 100, and do it between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May.
You could walk 100 laps of your garden just like Captain Tom, swim 100 lengths or sing for 100 minutes. There are no rules (apart from Government guidelines on the roadmap out of lockdown) and it’s open to everyone. Do it YOUR way and have fun!
