Charity Firewalking events give your fundraisers the chance to say they have "Walked on Fire" (bare foot) for your cause!
Firewalking is the act of walking barefoot over a bed of hot embers or stones. In these modern times, firewalking is often used by people as an inexpensive way of overcoming their personal issues and fears. Some people have used Firewalking to overcome their depression, feelings of being stuck in a rut, overcoming their limiting beliefs, opening themselves up for enlightenment & clarity. Charity Firewalks are a great way to beat the economic climate right now. People are not giving as much as they use to, and they're bored of the same fundraising techniques of bake sales, rummage sales, discount coupon books, candy sales etc.. Hosting a CHARITY FIREWALK is not only highly unique, but it's way more exciting than asking people to golf, run/bike another 5K, or 10K marathon etc.. Firewalking has also been proven to be a fantastic way to raise a lot of money, and draw huge crowds to watch & support the "Firewalking" participants! Everyone wants to see the Firewalk!
Additional money can be raised, if you have venders there to offer food to all the people waiting for the "Firewalkers" to come out from the Empowerment seminar, and "Walk on the Fire"! Afterwards...everyone's very excited, pumped up and the energy is really HIGH, so don't forget to plan for some type of celebration after the event...dancing is very popular after a FIREWALK!
HOW IT USUALLY WORKS - In simple terms, each participant pays your Charity an "Entrance Fee" to participate in the Charity Firewalk. This helps the Charity pay for hiring Claudia Weber and her "Iginte your Spirit" firewalk team. Pre-registration required. After that's done, each individual participant makes a commitment to venture out into the community and get as many people as they can to sponsor them to "Walk on Fire" (red hot coals) for your Charity, thus raising money for the Charity. ALL participants agree to attend the 2 hour Empowerment Seminar (which takes place right before the Firewalk), where they are equipped with the motivation, knowledge and resources to walk over a 10-12 foot bed of red hot coals, at about 800- 1200 degrees F. The training is very participative and is based on proven motivational and psychological methods. All potential firewalking candidates MUST attend and participate fully in the training seminar, no exceptions. The energy is high & positive, and it's a GREAT time for everyone!
The above video is of Claudis Weber's "Fire Tenders" lighting the Firewalk fire. The purpose of this video is to show the quiet spirituality and validity of this unique moment. Please take notice of all of the participants silence...as they absorb this experience in their own individual way, listening only to the crackling of the fire and the crickets singing.

Most people have heard of "Firewalking", and many have always wanted to try it. So tap into their desire for adventure by asking your fundraisers to "Walk on Fire" - getting sponsored to do so. Whether the sponsorship money is for being brave enough to go through with it, or an amount for each walk across the coals (up to 4 times allowed). It has been shown that when people are given the opportunity to be sponsored to Firewalk, they really step up and pull out all the stops, and are capable of so much more than they ever thought possible.
Claudia M. Weber is the sole owner of "Ignite your Spirit" Empowerment Seminars & Firewalks.
