About the event

All you need to do is dream up a challenge based around the number 100, and do it between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May.

You could walk 100 laps of your garden just like Captain Tom, swim 100 lengths or sing for 100 minutes. There are no rules (apart from Government guidelines on the roadmap out of lockdown) and it's open to everyone. Do it your way and have fun!

  • Think up your 100 challenge. It can be anything you like – from walking 100 metres to baking 100 cakes or writing 100 letters
  • Take on your 100 any time between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May
  • Fundraise to support people severely affected by mental illness
  • Share your 100 on social media using #CaptainTom100
