Last weekend was Sir Captain Tom’s 101st Birthday. To celebrate, people across the country took on the Captain Tom 100 Challenge raising money for organisations that were important to them. We have some fantastic stories of amazing fundraisers who took part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge for Whizz-Kidz.

Two of our London Marathon runners decided to run 100km in the space of a week. Despite completing their challenges in different parts of the country, they supported each other every day by posting and chatting on our London Marathon Facebook page.

Simmy, one of our fantastic fundraisers, donated 100 food items to two different food banks and raised £400 for Whizz-Kidz while doing it! This original idea absolutely embodies the spirit of the Captain Tom Challenge.

Next is Benedict who, over the course of a week, is cycling 100km every day! 700km over 7 days with no days off work is a tough commitment but an amazing achievement!

We are so grateful for and proud of everyone that took part, Go Team Whizz-Kidz! If you would like to take on some fundraising events for Whizz-Kidz please don't hesitate to get in touch with our Events Team on or call 0207 233 9696.
