Fundraise Your Way

Halloween Firewalk

Are you brave enough to face your fears this Halloween?

Imagine how impressed your friends, family and colleagues will be when they see you walk over 20 feet of hot coals… all in the name of charity!

You can raise money for the university project you care about most: help inspire pioneering research; open doors to medical breakthroughs; and support students.

“I can honestly say that the firewalk was one of the most incredible things I have ever done in my entire life.”

Previous Firewalk participant

Our team of professional firewalkers will provide you with everything you need to take part in this year’s hottest event. You will attend a two hour training course starting at 6.00pm in the Playfair Library before walking twenty feet over embers burning at approximately 1,200°F/ 650 °C.

Your friends, family and colleagues are welcome to join you in the Old College Quadrangle to cheer you on, take photos, and see you awarded a well-deserved certificate afterwards!

Participants must be aged 18 or over at the time of the Firewalk.

Registration costs £25 and we ask you to raise a minimum £125 sponsorship for your chosen area of the University.
