We’re proud to be part of the #CaptainTom100 to celebrate the life and legacy of Captain Sir Tom Moore to improve the lives of children in rural Tanzania through education.

What is the CaptainTom100 Challenge?

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.

Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since his death on 2nd February, his family 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. 

And that event is the CaptainTom100

How does it work?

It’s so simple. All you need to do is dream up a CaptainTom100 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 could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or out.  

Once supporters have chosen their challenge, they can fundraise or donate to EdUKaid and share their 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100
