Captain Tom Moore

Thomas Moore is popularly known as Captain Tom. He was born on the 30th April 1920. He is a former British army officer. He served army from 1939 to 1946. He served in India and Myanmar during world war two. He was educated from Oakbank School, Keighley.

He set himself the challenge of walking 100 laps of his 25 metres garden to help raise money for the NHS. He aimed to at least raise thousand pounds but in fact he raised more than 28 million pounds.

If I had to set a challenge to raise money for donations I would like to run 2 to 5 miles and raise as much money as possible.
