Friday 30 April to Monday 3 May 2021
Join #TeamRNIB for the Captain Tom 100 and support people with sight loss.
On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore began walking round his garden to thank our NHS heroes. With 100 laps, he raised an incredible £39.8 million for the NHS coronavirus appeal.
His message of hope – "Tomorrow will be a good day" – inspired millions around the world and brought comfort and joy to many.
Now it's our turn to build on that legacy. Friday 30 April would have been Tom's 101st birthday. To honour him and his achievements, join #TeamRNIB from 30 April – 3 May for the Captain Tom 100. You'll be raising vital funds to support blind and partially sighted people when they need it most.
How it works
Pick a challenge that involves 100. It could be walking 100 steps or 100 laps of your local park, baking 100 cakes, doing 100 press ups or writing a 100-word poem – anything at all!
Set up a fundraising page to sign up to the event, then choose your own fundraising target.
Complete your 100 challenge between 30 April – 3 May.
Share your 100 success on social media using the hashtag #CaptainTom100 and tag us @RNIB.
If you're not able to take on a challenge, you can still get involved by donating to the campaign.

How your fundraising helps
Across the UK, 250 people every day start to lose their sight. We want to make sure no one faces a diagnosis alone and that people with sight loss can live in a world with no barriers.
Just £50 can help someone who is coming to terms with their sight loss, providing emotional and practical support. Join RNIB in Captain Tom 100 and make every day better for people living with sight loss.
