On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set off from his garden to raise money for our NHS heroes. 100 laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal.
Now it’s our turn to build on his legacy. Friday 30 April would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday. To honour him and his amazing achievements, take part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge for Friends of Rosie and help raise vital funds for children’s cancer research.
What’s the challenge all about?
Between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May, everyone’s invited to take part in the 100 challenge for Friends of Rosie.
You could walk 100 laps of your garden just like Captain Tom, swim 100 lengths, or sing for 100 minutes. There are no rules (apart from Government guidelines on the roadmap out of lockdown) and it’s open to everyone. Do it your way and have fun!
It’s so simple. All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100, fundraise or donate to Friends of Rosie, and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100 and tagging Friends of Rosie. We’d love to see what you get up to!
Every penny raised or donated goes towards much needed research into the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood cancer.
Please help us to give children with cancer a brighter future.
