Things are heating up this November
As the weather turns cooler, we have the perfect offerings this November to heat things up and get the adrenaline going!
On Thursday 2 November, Shooting Star Children’s Hospices flame to please with a sizzling Fire Walk at Chiswick Park. Taking place the same night as the park’s spectacular fireworks display, it makes for a perfect evening to showcase your bravery in front of colleagues, friends and family before a night of celebration!
This truly unforgettable experience requires no training regime or special equipment, just a spark of courage, as you step across hot embers, raising your heart rate and money for local children.
The Fire Walk returns to be part of Chiswick Park’s annual Firework Extravaganza. One of London’s biggest free firework events, you’ll find a fabulous selection of food to warm you whilst you enjoy the choreographed flames and fireworks.
Or, if you are more of a runner than a walker, why not take on one of the most picturesque runs around, the Hampton Court Palace 10K on Sunday 19 November.
We are their official charity partner this year, with Shooting Star House, our Outreach, Therapies and Family Support Centre just two miles down the road from the Palace. Shooting Star House provides a comprehensive range of therapies and specialist clinics for the whole family, from hydrotherapy sessions, counselling and complementary therapies. These services help children, parents and siblings, as well as the wider family, cope with and manage stress, setting the space apart from conventional medial settings.
With its flat route, this event is the perfect opportunity to try out your first 10k, or if you’re a more seasoned runner, why not try and achieve a personal best.
Whether you get fired up and raise your temperature and heart rate with the Fire Walk or don your trainers and enjoy the backdrop of Hampton Court Palace and the River Thames with the Hampton Court Palace 10k, by taking part you’ll be supporting Shooting Star Children’s Hospices make every moment count for local families.
