A Force For Good

Join the North Texas Firewalkers in our largest “giving back” event of 2018.  The North Texas Firewalkers are joining forces with The Boys & Girls Club of Dallas for our 4th annual Thanksgiving Basket Delivery.

Last year we delivered Thanksgiving Dinner to 280+ families. Once again we are SUPER CHARGING  our efforts. In addition to delivering Thanksgiving Baskets to families in need, we will also be delivering a weeks’ worth of groceries to families that are in crisis.

Once Life Changed

Tony Robbins shares his story of when he was 11 years old and a stranger delivered Thanksgiving dinner to him and his family. This simple act of kindness was a pivotal moment in his life. Tony has continued to pay that act of kindness forward and has fed over 1 Million people all around the world.
