The Movement Centre is excited to be involved in the Captain Tom 100! 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 The Movement Centre is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part.
The Movement Centre like many other charities has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s had a catastrophic effect, with the cancellation of our fundraising events and the loss of thousands in income.
Captain Tom 100 offers The Movement Centre supporters, of all ages and abilities, the
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 the 100 challenge 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, 100 cars cleaned, writing a 100-word poem, anything at all, inside or out.
Once supporters have chosen their challenge, they can fundraise or donate to The Movement Centre and share their 100 challenge on social media, using #CaptainTom100.
Become an ambassador
The Movement Centre are looking for 15 ambassadors to carry the flag and complete 100 challenges with a difference.
We would love our supporters and families to become Captain Tom 100 Ambassadors for The Movement Centre during this fantastic challenge, and help us raise vital funds for The Movement Centre.
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!”
Fundraising and Marketing Officer, for The Movement Centre, Curtis Langley, said: “We are delighted to be involved in Captain Tom 100, and we want to urge all of our families and supporters to come up with their own 100 challenges. To be involved in such a fantastic event, with everything that is going on is a privilege”
