Fire & Ice
Fire and Ice Challenge
We’re offering you the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and do something truly extraordinary, by learning new skills and all whilst raising money for charity! You really can plunge yourself into ice cold water and/or walk over a bed of hot coals; we have professionals on hand to teach you how!
10th and 11th November
Choose one, or both, to experience this ultimate, empowering challenge which will take place at Debenham Community Centre.
About the Ice Challenge (Wim Hof Method)
The Wim Hof team will instruct you in their recognised method based on three powerful pillars; breathing, cold therapy and commitment. You will learn to keep your mind and body in their optimal natural state which allows you to complete this incredible challenge.

The qualified and professional team from FFA UK (Fundraising Firewalk Association) will teach you all you need know, to be able to walk barefoot along 15 feet of red-hot embers, burning at over 1000 degrees! This could be the most challenging walk of your life.
