The 100 Challenge

Supporters of JDRF 100 Challenge

Your amazing support for JDRF’s 100 Challenge has helped us raise a fantastic amount to support those living with type 1 diabetes over the past few months. If you haven’t taken part yet, why not join us for one last push over the May bank holiday weekend and be part of a global fundraising effort to honour the incredible legacy of Sir Captain Tom Moore?

30 April marks what would’ve been Sir Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday and one year since he completed his inspirational 100 challenge.

To honour the occasion, Captain Tom’s family are encouraging people to celebrate his life and achievements by taking part in a 100 challenge between 30 April and 3 May to raise money for a charity of their choice.

So if you have been thinking of taking part in a 100 challenge to support our work, now is the perfect time.

Sign up!

Your 100 challenge could be absolutely anything you like; walk 100 laps round the park, cycle for 100 minutes, score 100 goals. Or like Mr Motivator here you can take on a 100 squat, burpee or press up challenge!

You can do your challenge individually, as a family or with friends, break it up into bite size chunks or do it all at once. Just make sure you’re following any government guidelines.
