Not all heroes wear capes, as a matter of fact sometimes they use a walker!

World War II veteran Tom Moore set out to walk 100 laps of his back garden in Bedfordshire, around 50 miles northwest of London, before his 100th birthday on April 30 to raise money for the NHS.

His original fundraising target was $1,250. His family said the fundraising site JustGiving had to stop the “Captain Tom Moore’s 100th Birthday Walk for the NHS” page from crashing, as more than 90,000 people tried to access it at one point. So far, more than 860,000 people have donated more than $20 mil to Moore’s effort.
