110214 SSBA Firewalk Challenge

SSBA's Firewalk Challenge 2011

The Scottish Spina Bifida Association (SSBA) have teamed up with Firewalking experts ‘Soulfire Limited’ to provide their supporters with the spectacular opportunity to walk across 20 feet of burning embers in this extraordinary challenge. The challenge itself is not just about walking on fire but about learning skills which you can use in everyday life, having fun with team building skills and making new friends. The Challenge takes place on March 26 in Edinburgh and runs for three hours end to end. All participants start the evening with a private, motivational, fear busting seminar, designed to equip them with the skills to walk barefoot, unharmed across 20 feet of wood embers burning at 1236 degrees Fahrenheit.

The training is based around proven motivational and psychological methods
