Fire walking is an amazing experience, so what’s it all about?

Fire walking - walking barefoot over red hot coals burning at over 1200F - is the ultimate test of mind over matter.

The fire walk is an amazing way to impress your friends, yourself and have some fun!


Exciting and Safe

The fire walk is organised by B.L.A.Z.E - a team of professional instructors - who build the fire to specific criteria. Participants take part in a two hour motivational "fear buster" training seminar to prepare them for the ultimate challenge - walking across 20ft of burning wood embers with no injuries and at the same time raising funds for CRY.  It could be the shortest sponsored walk you ever do!



The main aim of the challenge is to raise funds for Cardiac Risk in the Young. Details of how to do a fundraising fire walk can be found on the B.L.A.Z.E website


Fundraising help - we can help your fundraising by offering you a personal online sponsorship / donations web page free of charge.


Individuals can go to the B.L.A.Z.E HQ to do their fire walk, or groups can arrange for B.L.A.Z.E  to bring the fire to them!
