David Beckham did 100 keepy-uppies to help kick off the #CaptainTom100 challenge, honoring the late WWII veteran and COVID hero. He’s one of several celebrities taking part in the challenge, raising money for the Captain Tom Foundation charity on his 101st birthday.
The challenge, which was started by Captain Moore’s family, comes a year after he walked 100 laps around his backyard to raise money for the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS). His goal was to raise about $1,400 for healthcare workers, and he ended up raising more than $45 million.
Dame Judi Dench also took part in the challenge, eating 100 Maltesers. “Last year, Captain Tom inspired us all by doing 100 lengths of his lawn and raising a huge amount of money,” the actress said in the video.
