Captain Tom 100

Everyone enjoyed taking part in the Captain Tom 100 challenge to honour him and his amazing achievements.

It’s hard to believe that back in April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes for their heroic efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. One hundred laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million and inspired millions around the world.

Friday 30 April marked what would have been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday and, in his memory, The Captain Tom Foundation invited everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take part in the Captain Tom 100. The idea being to come up with a challenge based around the number 100.

Pupils had a great time coming up with their own challenges – testing themselves with the ‘100 catch challenge’, along with cricket games, shuttle runs, star jumps and squats! With the event running over the Bank Holiday weekend, many pupils continued to dream up ideas with golf and pogo stick challenges at home.

Everyone had great fun taking part in the Captain Tom 100, helping to spread his message of hope and resilience and ensuring his legacy lives on.
