100 Challenge

Captain Tom100 Challenge

Brain Tumour Research is joining the nation as we continue the fundraising legacy of Captain Tom to mark what would have been his 101st birthday on 30th April 2021.

Inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore’s 100 laps of his garden, we are joining the nationwide campaign to encourage everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take on their own 100 challenge over the May bank holiday weekend 30th April to 3rd May

This could be following in Captain Sir Tom’s footsteps and completing your own 100 laps of a garden, park or field, or something completely different such as baking 100 cupcakes or doing 100 push ups. Why not tell 100 jokes? The choice is up to you!

What will your Captain Tom Challenge be?

Once you’ve decided what ‘100 things’ you will do, simply set up your Just Giving page and don’t forget to share with your friends and family. Set your target to £100 and see how much you can raise!

Why 100?

Captain Tom set out on 6th April 2020 to complete 100 laps of his garden before he turned 100 with an initial target of £1,000 to thank the NHS heroes working through the COVID-19 pandemic. He exceeded his expectations and raised an outstanding £38.9 million (including gift aid) as well as demonstrating gratitude for all key workers and inspiring others.

This year join us in what would have been Captains Tom’s 101st birthday by completing your own Captain Tom 100 Challenge.

Let’s keep Captain Tom’s legacy of hope alive for brain tumour patients and their families.
