Captain Sir Tom Moore became a household name last April after embarking on a challenge to raise money for NHS Charities Together. On 6th April 2020, not too long after the UK entered lockdown, Captain Tom began walking 100 laps of his garden with the aim of raising £1000 by his 100th birthday. By the time it reached his 100th birthday on 30th April 2020, over £30 million had been raised.
Captain Tom ended up raising an astonishing £38.9 million for NHS Charities Together. He continued to inspire millions over the globe for the next 10 months. Captain Tom sadly passed away on 2nd February 2021, but what he left was a sense of hope to millions across the globe.
Captain Tom’s family, along with the event organisers from mass participation events across the UK, invite you to celebrate what would have been his 101st birthday by taking part in the Captain Tom 100 challenge.
All you need to do to get involved in Captain Tom 100 is think of a challenge based around the number 100. This could be anything from walking 100 laps of your garden like Captain Tom, to baking 100 cupcakes. You will have from Friday 30th April until Monday 3rd May to complete your challenge and raise money for your favourite charity. Here are some more challenge ideas to help you get started.
ARC relies on donations and fundraising to be able to do the work we do. The pandemic has meant that we have lost thousands in fundraising and it's expected to continue to have an impact over the next few months. Support us so we are able to ensure that parents are always able to turn to ARC for impartial support and information when they are told there are difficulties in their pregnancy.
If you have any questions, please contact Rebecca on email@example.com. Thank you for taking on this challenge in aid of ARC!
