About the event

Friday 30 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.

Captain Sir Tom Moore's family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, could get involved in. That event is the Captain Tom 100.

Everyone of all ages and abilities, is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100. Starting on Friday 30 April through to 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 an 100 word poem, flipping 100 pancakes - anything at all, inside or outside.

How to get involved

It's so simple. All you need to do is dream up a challenge, do it 100 times and fundraise for your chosen charity. 

There are no rules, apart from the Government guidelines on the roadmap out of lockdown. It's open to everyone. Do it your way, and have fun!

Physical activity and your mental health

"I've always found that exercise is the one thing that gets me well again, with depression, it's invaluable. It makes me feel great, just healthy and active. I don't feel as tired or lethargic when I exercise and it makes me happy and content in myself."
