Fire & Ice Walk – Canterbury

Friday 2 March 2018

The ‘hottest, shortest sponsored walk in the world’ will return in March 2018 with a cool new twist!

Get fired up for a Firewalk, one of the most inspirational journeys you’ll ever undertake; a barefoot walk over red-hot wood embers measuring around 800 degrees! No tricks, no special effects. Just you and the fire. You’ll conquer the most primal of fears and raise vital funds for our hospices, too. With every single step you’ll make an incredible difference to our patients and their families.

Cooler customers can opt for our brand new Icewalk. Put mind over matter and achieve the impossible by walking barefoot across a bed of sterile broken glass.

It’s important to bear in mind that there’s no illusion involved. No special materials are used, nor are you hypnotised or put into an altered state of consciousness!

No previous training is required. With interactive training seminars by renowned motivational speaker and fire and glass walking expert Cliff Mann from Time4Change before the daring dash, we know you’ll feel fantastic once you’ve completed your challenge. After all, if you can achieve this you can find the confidence to do anything.

Spaces are limited, so please register online now to secure your place.
