Captain Tom 100 Challenge - 30th April - 1st May

Celebrate the amazing achievements of Captain Tom and fundraise for Mane Chance at the same time.

Captain Tom’s simple message of hope – “Tomorrow will be a good day” – inspired millions around the world and brought comfort and joy to so many during the pandemic.

Now it’s your turn to build on that legacy.

Friday 30 April would have been his 101st birthday and to honour him and his amazing achievements, The Captain Tom Foundation would love everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take part in the Captain Tom 100 and support your local charity.
