A 100-year-old World War II veteran who raised millions in COVID relief has died from the coronavirus.

Captain Sir Tom Moore became a national icon in the U.K. when he walked 100 laps around his garden – helping raise nearly $40 million for the National Health System. 

His family said he was taken to the hospital Sunday after being treated for pneumonia and later died after contracting COVID-19.
