Captain Tom 100 Challenge

What? Anything involving the number 100

Where? Anywhere

When? Friday 30 April til Bank Holiday Monday 3 May 2021 

Back Up is thrilled to be joining charities up and down the country taking part in Captain Tom’s 100! We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in Captain Tom 100 from Friday 30 April to celebrate Captain Sir Tom Moore’s amazing achievements and raise vital funds for Back Up.

Friday 30 April would have been Captain Sir Tom’s 101st birthday and is the one-year anniversary of the extraordinary celebrations that followed the conclusion of his fundraising walk that raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS.

What’s Your 100?

All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100 – an activity of your choice based around the number 100 – and do it any time and anywhere from Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May. You could…

  • Shoot 100 basketball your pyjamas 
  • Decorate 100 cupcakes 
  • Push 100 laps around the park
  • Make 100 tik toks of 100 dance moves
