The Rowcroft Fire & LEGO® Walks 🔥🧱

Get fired up for our Fire and LEGO® Walks – we dare you!

Are you ready to walk on fire for your local hospice? Join us on Saturday 12 October in the grounds of Rowcroft Hospice where we dare anyone over the age of 12 to take on the epic feat of walking barefoot over red hot embers in the thrilling Fire Walk! Younger children can show their bravery too by conquering the colourful LEGO® Walk. These exciting challenges, run by Firewalk Events, empower you to discover and channel your inner strength and conquer your fears.

The aim of this unforgettable day is to bring families and friends together in support of the hospice: raising essential funds through sponsorship to care for patients and their loved ones across South Devon. The day will also include a performance of ‘fire eating’ by Higher Beings Circus, games for all the family, a bouncy castle, as well as a BBQ and refreshments.

Mind over matter 😅

Are up to the challenge?

The challenges are run by Firewalk Events, and you’ll receive full training on harnessing the power of your mind. This will enable you to put ‘mind over matter’ and walk barefoot over the scorching embers which, at around 400°C, are four times hotter than a boiling kettle!

“These unique challenges offer adrenaline-filled fun for people of all ages,” said Holly Traynor, Rowcroft’s Events and Projects Fundraiser. “It’s a chance to confront your fears, test the power of your mind and body with something extraordinary, have a laugh with family and friends, and most importantly, support a cause that’s close to home. Plus, who wouldn’t want to say they’ve walked on fire or conquered the LEGO® gauntlet?!”

The LEGO® Walk will see the younger ones navigating an exciting path of vibrant bricks, first with socks on, then with socks off. Both challenges can be performed multiple times; it’s up to you how many times you do it!

“Rowcroft is like a family that embraces you in the darkest times. It wraps its arms around you when you need it most.”

Ruth's Story 💜

Learn about the support Rowcroft provided to Ruth and her husband David…

Ruth Archer from Brixham received support from Rowcroft during the hardest days imaginable after her husband David was diagnosed with life-limiting pancreatic cancer in February 2022.

“Rowcroft’s nurses were with us whenever we needed them, ensuring he was safe and pain-free,” says Ruth. “I will be forever grateful that we were able to bring him home where he passed away peacefully.

“Sadly, nearly everyone at some point in their life will experience the trauma of life-limiting illness, either directly or as a loved one, and the crucial services and the support that Rowcroft offers shine a light in the overwhelming darkness.”
