WASHINGTON – Captain Tom Moore, the man who raised over £30 million (40 million USD) for the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK, has died at the age of 100 after testing positive for COVID-19.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear father, Captain Sir Tom Moore.” Moore’s daughters said in a statement Tuesday. “The last year of our father’s life was nothing short of remarkable. He was rejuvenated and experienced things he’d only ever dreamed of.”

Captain Moore made national headlines last April when he set an initial goal of £1,000 for walking in his garden in Bedfordshire with his walker, going on to raise millions with his efforts.

Moore had been knighted for his work.

Moore came down with pneumonia and tested positive for COVID-19 January 31st and was admitted to the hospital. Prior to his death, well wishes for the Veteran came from all across the world, including prime minister Boris Johnson.
