04 Mar Will you Walk the Walk?
The Rotary Fire Walk is only a few weeks away and we have a Sherwoods Team getting involved on Friday 24th April from 6:00 till 10:00 pm at the lovely Dainton Park Golf Club.
We (Team Sherwoods) are raising money for two charities this year, The Meadowside Charity and our Players Player Charity, the Motor Neuron Disease Association. So please get involved and get sponsorship! We are looking for a team of 8+ and currently have 3 signed up and ready to Walk the Walk! This is a family event and everyone is welcome but you do need to be 14 or over to do the fire walk.
Courage is not the absence of fear.
It is the ability to operate despite fear!
WHAT IS FIREWALKING? In simple terms, sponsored individuals, after a motivational training session, walk across 20 feet of wood embers burning at 1236 degrees Fahrenheit, without experiencing any pain or injury at all. How are you organising this? The RCNA Firewalk will be facilitated by experts from Blaze.
Check out their website at www.blazefirewalking.com
IS FIREWALKING SAFE? We have chosen to work with Blaze because of their impeccable professional record and they will get you through the event in complete safety. Blaze have been offering firewalks for over 20 years, their safety checks and procedures are fine-tuned and the team organising the walk is extremely experienced. Out of all the events they have facilitated, not one person attending a motivational training has refused the opportunity to firewalk.
WHY SHOULD I DO IT? This is an inspirational and barrier-breaking experience for you, while raising money for a fantastic cause. You will feel motivated, empowered, and inspired to face your fears. Given the type of event, donors often offer higher sponsorship than you would get for a normal sponsored walk or sports challenge, so it’s a fantastic way to support YOUR CHARITY OR CAUSE.
WHY ARE ROTARY PUTTING ON THIS EVENT? The Rotary Club of Newton Abbot typically distribute over £20,000 a year to local charities, but we also facilitate other fund raising by using members time and skills to help smaller charities and organisations raise funds, by putting on events much larger than they would otherwise have been able to.

DO I NEED TO DO ANY PREPARATION? No! On the evening of the event, you will take part in a motivational psychology fear-busting seminar, which will equip you with the resources to walk across the fire bed unharmed.
