Captain Sir Tom Moore

Do it your way! 

Captain Sir Tom Moore was a beacon of hope during the start of the pandemic, when he took on the incredible challenge of walking 100 laps of his garden to raise money for charity.

Friday 30 April would have been his 101st birthday, and is the one-year anniversary of him completing his extraordinary journey, raising £38.9m for the NHS. To help celebrate his legacy and raise money for WCRF we’re asking you to take part in the ‘Captain Tom 100 challenge’. 
When does this take place?
The event will happen on Captain Tom’s birthday weekend from Friday 30 April – Monday 3 May.
Who can participate?
Everyone – of all ages and abilities. 

How do I get involved?
All you have to do is take on an activity that involves the number 100, and complete this at any time or place over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend. This could be walking 100 steps, dancing for 100 minutes, reading 100 pages of a book or even building 100 sandcastles – the options are endless.

Take a look at our video to see how the WCRF staff members are getting involved with the challenge, and gain some inspiration for your own activity! You can also head over to the Challenge Accepted app for more ideas on how to get involved.
Once you have chosen your activity, you can fundraise or donate to WCRF and encourage others to get involved too.

How will this help WCRF? 
The money you raise by taking part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge will go towards running our free online cookery classes for anyone in the UK living with cancer. Each attendee will have access to a private online group session with our registered oncologist dietitian and will receive a free cookery class pack.

“The sun will shine again, the birds will sing and we’ll all have a lovely day tomorrow” – Captain Sir Tom Moore.
