Captain Tom 100 Challenge

A new fundraising initiative over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend of Friday 30 April (what would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday) to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May has been launched to celebrate Captain Sir Tom’s life and amazing achievements. Captain Tom 100 invites people all over the world to take on a challenge
based around the number 100 to raise funds for charity.

Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore on 2 February, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, could be involved in. That event is the Captain Tom 100 and ME Research UK is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part.

Captain Tom 100 offers our supporters, of all ages and abilities, the the opportunity to raise crucial funds for our charity, while at the same time celebrating Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun.

It’s so simple to take part. All participants need to do is dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the
number 100 and do it at any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend – starting on
Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.

The challenge is anything you can hink of which refers to the number 100 – anything at all, inside or out.
