In 2020, Captain Tom Moore, a British WWII veteran decided to raise money for charity in the run-up to his 100th birthday. During the first lockdown in April, he challenged himself to walk 100 times the length of his garden, in the course of 10 days, aiming to raise £1,000 for the National Health Service. But his “birthday walk” won over British hearts and on the day he turned 100, Moore had raised £30 million, become a popular household name and was even knighted by the Queen. A beautiful end-of-life achievement: Moore contracted coronavirus in early February, and died a few weeks ago.
