This March, Tŷ Hafan is firing up its 2024 events calendar with this hot-off-the-press challenge to keep you on your toes. Could this spring be your time to try something new? Meet the Firewalk.
The Firewalk is quite possibly the shortest sponsored walk you’ll ever take on. At just five metres in length, those who dare will reach the finish line before they know it, but this is certainly event that brings the heat. With no tricks of the eye or special effects, participants will walk bare foot across a stretch of wooden embers burning at 800 degrees.
What we love about this event is how accessible it is. You don’t have to do months of training to be ready – in fact, you’ll have all the training you need to complete the Firewalk on the day of the event.
Head of Fundraising at Tŷ Hafan, James Davies-Hale, explains: “This is our second year of hosting the Firewalk challenge at Cardiff City Stadium and we cannot wait to see the amazing supporters take on this challenge. “We’re excited to be hosting this unique fundraising event to raise funds for children in Wales
with a life-shortening condition and their families. “The great thing about this challenge is that you don’t need any experience, all necessary training will be provided on the day and whether you’re signing up as an individual or group, you’re going to have a fantastic experience.
“By taking on the Firewalk, you’ll be making a real difference to families of children with a life-shortening condition, so that they don’t have to face the death of their child alone. “I’ve seen firsthand how much fun people have when they do the Firewalk. My advice is, if you’re thinking of signing up to this challenge, just go for it. You’ll have the most amazing time.”
