Firewalking Ireland, along with volunteers and fundraisers, are lining up to walk across fire to help sick children.  On May 16th, a flaming trail of burning coals will be laid out in front of The Church Venue on Jervis Street Dublin 1, where the public will be able to watch a long line of volunteers walk over burning coals to raise much needed funds for the BUMBLEance part of The Saoirse Foundation.

This sponsored Firewalk has been organised to fund the BUMBLEance service by Angela O’Connor of Train-Ability and Darren Moore, General Manager of the Church Venue in Dublin’s City Centre Dublin 1. This is an opportunity for people to face their fears, focus their mind and boost their personal confidence. Walking across a fire bed of red hot burning coals with temperatures soaring above 500° Celsius is one of the toughest mind over matter challenges that you can do.  It is also one of the most rewarding. Firewalking Ireland unique approach will train you or your team to undertake this challenge in a safe and empowering manner that will have great benefits for you as individual or as a team.

BUMBLEance” is the World’s first interactive children’s ambulance service which transports children for free, from all over Ireland to & from the main children’s hospitals, respite & treatment centers and hospices. The BUMBLEance is the brain child of Tony and Mary Heffernan who sadly lost both their daughter Saoirse to Battens Disease in 2011 and their son Liam, 5, sadly passed away last week of the same disease.

Knowing first-hand the challenges and fears that a normal ambulance can crate in a child’s mind with their late daughter Saoirse, BUMBLEance was purpose built & launched in Sept 2013 to remove the stress of ambulance trips for children & the parents.

This state of the art ambulance is as colourful inside as it is out, and fully loaded with gadgets and gizmos, including a games console, 19” LED TV, Stereos, iPads etc. including a 2TB storage system capable of holding 6500 movies and cartoons, 13500 albums. The ambulance also has satellite tracking, dual channel Wi-Fi, allowing those onboard to see where they are on the road as well surf the net, Skype or engage in social media on the go.

Tony Heffernan, founder & CEO of the Saoirse Foundation stated, “This is Ireland at its best, our charity the Saoirse Foundation & myself are very grateful for the support of those participating in the Firewalk & especially those volunteering to organise the event, who hope to raise enough money to fund the service for several weeks”.

Full training will be provided to all of those who participate and registration is easy. The BUMBLEance will be there on the night for all to see & experience how it is helping the sickest of children to have stress free ambulance trips. This will also aid those taking part in the event of putting their challenge into perspective.

The Firewalk will start at 8pm on May 16th 2014 & will be followed by complimentary BBQ and refreshments. So why bring yourself and a team to help raise lots of money

 A True Story                       Our Plans                         In Action  

Firewalk Ireland ‘You are in safe hands’! Our Charity Firewalks are led by a fully qualified Firewalking Instructor, Stephen Brown Firewalking Ireland, trained in Sweden by Firemasters Rolf and Åsa Beckham, who have been training instructors since 1992. Rolf and Åsa were trained by, and worked alongside, Tolly Burkan, the Father of modern-day Firewalking. ‘I first Fire walked just almost 6 years ago when I set up my first Adventure Sports Company.  I loved the experience and found it very empowering to conquer another fear.  Fast forward 5 years and I was given the opportunity to train to become a Firewalking Instructor.  My passion for working with people, seeing them push their boundaries, challenge their comfort zones and try new thing screamed “do it!” and so I did.  Now I am one of a privileged few people that can train people to walk on fire and feel the same sense of achievement that I did’ said Stephen Brown Firewalk Ireland
