Captain Tom 100 for GYC

30Apr2021

Join the #CaptainTom100Challenge and help GYC support the YOUNG in young carer.

Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore on 2nd 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 GYC are inviting you to raise money for us in his name.

How it works:

All you need to do is dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and do it any time over his birthday weekend- Friday 30th April to Monday 3rd 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, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or out.
