HEART UK supporters invited to celebrate Captain Sir Tom's achievements in special fundraising event
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 HEART UK is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part.
Like many other charities, HEART UK has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, with the cancellation of many sporting challenges and subsequent loss of income.
Captain Tom 100 offers HEART UK supporters, of all ages and abilities, the opportunity to raise crucial funds for our charity, 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 any time 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, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem – anything at all, inside or out.
Once supporters have chosen their challenge, they can fundraise or donate to HEART UK, and share their 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100 and tagging @Heartukcharity. If you would like to take part, please sign up here
Captain Tom’s daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore, said: “We are so grateful for the incredible support we have received since my father started his record-breaking fundraising walk and that his message of hope was shared with the world. Captain Tom was very proud to be able to leave behind the growing legacy of his Foundation. We know he would love the idea of inviting everyone to get involved and share their Captain Tom 100 so that together we can ensure ‘Tomorrow will be a good day’. We look forward to celebrating with you on what would have been his 101st birthday weekend – it’s going to be fun!”
