Firewalk for National Star

Friday 22 February 2019

Following the sell-out success of our 50th Anniversary Firewalk, get ready for the return of the coals in February 2019!

This adrenaline-fuelled challenge is like no other and will put your courage to the test as you hotfoot it across 20 feet of embers burning up to an incredible 1236°F.

Put your best foot forward and get sponsored to change the lives of young people with complex disabilities with every step.

With more places available this time, there’s even more opportunity for you to say Can Do to conquering the coals in aid of National Star. Have YOU got what it takes?

When: Friday 22 February, 6pm to 10pm

Where: National Star, Ullenwood, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL53 9QU

What happens on the day?

  • This once-in-a-lifetime experience begins with a motivational two-hour training session. By the end of it you will feel empowered, inspired and ready to take on the firewalk safely.
  • One by one our firewalkers will cross 20 feet of wood embers burning at 1236 degrees Fahrenheit. Family, friends and co-workers are encouraged to cheer for you from the sidelines!
  • Once you have successfully braved the blaze you will receive a certificate of achievement and be given the opportunity to share your amazing experience with your fellow fearless firewalkers. Food and drink will be available to buy on the night.

Health and safety

National Star has partnered with firewalking experts BLAZE to run the event. BLAZE has an impeccable safety record and puts in place stringent checks and procedures. All firewalkers are prepared for the challenge, both mentally and physically, in a compulsory two-hour training session.

Registration and sponsorship

There is a non-refundable registration fee of £20. All of our firewalkers are required to raise a minimum of £80 in sponsorship, although you are encouraged to raise as much as possible. Every single penny you raise will enable us to continue to transform the lives of young people with complex disabilities.
