Captain Tom 100 Challenge


From the 30th of April to the 3rd of May we are inviting you to get involved in the Captain Tom 100 challenge and #Raise4ReachOut. Sir Captain Tom Moore was an inspiration to so many of us, showing incredible determination and character to complete 100 laps around his garden to raise money for NHS Charities Together. We want to follow in his footsteps on what would have been his 101st birthday.


All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100  – an activity of your choice based around the numbers 100 – and do it anytime and anywhere from the 30th of April through to the 3rd of May. You can complete your own activity or get family, friends or colleagues to join you.

Your 100 could be walking 100 steps, running 100 miles with a team, doing 100 keepy-uppies, baking 100 cakes, or hosting a quiz with 100 questions, anything at all, inside or outside. It’s your chance to do it your way and show us your character strengths!  


Once you’ve decided on your challenge, you can fundraise or donate to ReachOut and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100


This academic year ReachOut has supported around 500 young people, across London, Manchester, Liverpool and Oldham to develop their character, raise aspirations and improve their academic attainment.

“At first, I was really hesitant to take on the Project Leader role, despite having mentored with ReachOut. However, with the support of the team I’ve really developed my skills. For example, at the Mentee Graduation, I stood up in front of 200 people and presented an award which is something I would never ever have been able to have done before, and isn’t an opportunity I could gain in my other situations.”

Amy McCutcheon, Project Leader at ReachOut Academy, Dean Trust Ardwick, Manchester.


“Being able to spend the summer working at Rede Partners, was an amazing experience. Whether it was working in HR or Finance, I learned so much about the world of private equity, made great connections with fantastic people and I got to learn first-hand what it would be like to work there! I really believe that I can go onto build the career I want now I’ve been a part for a workplace for real”

Victor Adekunle, 18 years old, ReachOut Ambassador, London


“When I first my mentee, she was very reluctant to participate in the sessions. Now, I see a completely different person! Her confidence has grown and she is happy to join in! She still has some self-doubt when it comes to academic work, but that’s what I hope to help her overcome, because she is a very bright person!

Through mentoring, I’ve learnt I’m a lot more patient than I realised. There will be days where she refuses to participate and those are the days that I really see the importance of the character strengths, for both the mentees and the mentors. It also makes it easier for the mentee to understand the character strengths, when I use them myself”

Myrtle, ReachOut Club mentor at Tufnell Primary School, London


“There are more distractions than ever outside of school, and the commitment of our students to attend ReachOut sessions is testament to the value they place on the relationships they foster there, and the challenge and enjoyment they provide.

ReachOut’s focus on communication skills and character development has become an important aspect of our provision of support for these students. The opportunity to relate to a positive role- model other than their usual teachers is key to the programme’s impact, and the evidence of this has been seen in the students’ attendance, resilience and to their overall progress across all the subjects in the school.”

Thomas Janvrin, Assistant Vice Principal at the Petchey Academy London
