Join the #CaptainTom100 challenge your way and raise vital funds for communities in Afghanistan!

What is the #CaptainTom100?

To celebrate what would've been Captain Sir Tom Moore's 101st birthday, London Marathon Events and the Captain Tom Foundation have created the #CaptainTom100 challenge, a campaign aimed at using the legacy of hope left by Captain Tom to inspire people to raise funds for charities across the UK.

From Friday 30th April to Monday 3rd May, take on 100 things - your way. Here's some ideas for how you could get involved:

  • Cycle 100 miles!
  • Dance for 100 minutes.
  • Why not march up a flight of stairs in your house 100 times?
  • Or, our personal favourite, how about you put an Afghan twist on the challenge & bake 100 Ab-E-Dandon biscuits - use our recipe!


Take on the #CaptainTom100 challenge with us by following these 3 steps:

1. Sign up

Join our exclusive #CaptainTom100 team, and we will send you tips and tricks to get you prepared for your challenge and social media resources to help you shout louder about your fundraising:


2. Set up your fundraising page

Set up your fundraising page directly on our website to ensure that all of the money comes directly to us.


Ask your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to donate to show their support for your incredible efforts. Remember to incentivise your donors!

3. Spread the word

The key with social media is to post regularly and keep people updated on what you're up to. Document your journey with lots of photos and videos, and remember to tag us using the #CaptainTom100 hashtag and our relevant social media handle! We can't wait to share your stories.

Thank you!

At challenging times like these, we're so grateful for each and every fundraiser who chooses to do something incredible to support our work and help ensure that communities across Afghanistan can drive development in their country despite the many challenges they face in 2021.

Raise £100 and you could buy a woman in Afghanistan 15 chickens, along with the food, tools and training she needs to take care of them properly. This could be a vital lifeline for a family in crises like these, providing them with food and a source of income, whilst ensuring that women can reach their potential.
