Captain Tom 100 Challenge

Walk 100 steps, run 100 metres, bake 100 cakes - whatever you decide to do, dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and celebrate Captain Tom’s birthday weekend

30 April - 3 May 2021
Scotland

 

Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore on 2 February, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, could be involved in. That event is the Captain Tom 100 and STV Children’s Appeal is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part.

STV Children’s Appeal, like many other charities, has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s had a catastrophic effect, with the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events and the loss of billions in income.

Captain Tom 100 offers STV Children’s Appeal supporters, of all ages and abilities, the opportunity to raise crucial funds, while at the same time celebrating Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun.

How it works

It’s so simple. All participants need to do is dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and do it at anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend – starting on Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.

The challenge could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or out.
