|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. |
Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since his death, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, could get involved in to celebrate Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun.
Everyone – of all ages and abilities – is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100, any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend, starting on Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May to raise funds for a charity close to their heart. That could be running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or out. It’s your chance to do it your way!
It’s so simple. All you need to do is get creative, think of your 100 challenge, and set up your fundraising page for COSMIC.
