Remap Supporters Invited to celebrate Captain Sir Tom’s Achievements in special fundraising event
Posted 23 April 2021 in News
- New fundraising initiative over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend of Friday 30 April to celebrate his life and amazing achievements.
- Captain Tom 100 invites people all over the world to take on a challenge based around the number 100 to raise funds for charity.
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 Remap is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part.
Remap, like many other charities, has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, and to continue to help make things possible we need your help!
The Captain Tom 100 offers Remap 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 you need to do is dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and do it at any time and anywhere from next Friday – which is Captain Tom’s birthday.
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, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or out.
Once supporters have chosen their challenge, they can fundraise or donate to Remap and share their 100 challenge on social media, using #CaptainTom100. Don’t forget to tag us in your posts!
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!”
