Discover what happened with a survivor of a brutal bushfire faced her greatest fear in the form of a firewalk.

When Australian marathon runner Turia Pitt was rescued from a massive bushfire in 2011, she suffered  burns over 65% of her body. On her road to recovery, she endured hundreds of surgeries, dying three times on the operating table.

Time after time, Turia was tested—and every time she emerged a survivor.

Still, she never imagined that just a few years later she would willingly be walking over hot coals.

Until she met Tony.

“Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that’s the one that is going to require the most from you.“ -Turia Pitt

Today, we’re sharing Turia’s testimony from when she faced the firewalk challenge at Unleash the Power Within.

It’s one of the most inspirational and moving stories we’ve ever heard, and a true testament to the transformative force of Tony’s events!
