From Friday 30th April to Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May 2021, we are asking you, your family and friends to celebrate Captain Sir Tom Moore’s amazing achievements and raise vital funds for Heart Research UK at the same time.


Friday the 30th 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.

Celebrate his life


Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since Captain Sir Tom’s death on the 2nd February this year, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone around the world could get involved in to celebrate his generosity, hope and sense of fun – the Captain Tom 100.


Like many other charities, Heart Research UK has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Across the charity sector, the effects have been catastrophic, with the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events and the loss of billions in income.


Captain Tom 100 offers 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.

Get involved

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


Your 100 event 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 outside. It’s your chance to do it your way! For more inspiration click on the button below or get in touch with Rachel on

Once you’ve decided what you’re doing, you can fundraise or donate to Heart Research UK and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100.
