Women’s Running are proud to support One Running Movement, helping educate and support children

Women’s Running are proud to support One Running Movement. One Running Movement was established to help create more active communities for all ages, and the creation of healthy habits by working together.

One Running Movement (ORM) has been doing some incredible things with the help of its partners, and between them have set up a forward-thinking way to raise vital funds for charity.

ORM has been working closely with RingPay pioneers McLEAR for some time now. McLEAR Smart Rings enable wearers to pay with just a tap. And the new RingPay Giving feature allows Ring holders to automatically send a donation to their chosen charity when they make a purchase using their Smart Ring.

The two partners have now teamed up with Digilearning. Digilearning is a charity dedicated to educating children, parents and teachers with digital skills – something that’s needed now more than ever.

One Running Movement, RingPay by McLEAR and Digilearning will work together in the active communities, social mobility and digital payment space as one to raise valuable funds for Digilearning through RingPay’s Giving feature.

The partnership was announced on Clubhouse, a new audio-only social media app that allows people from around the world to connect and talk.

Lisa Goodchild, Founder of the Digilearning Foundation said: “Currently there are 22% of children living in relative poverty in the UK and this number is growing. We must get to the root of the cause and ensure people have the essential skills to thrive in life. This partnership will not only allow us to reach more disadvantaged children but it will drive home our ethos, that digital innovation is crucial and can bring amazing changes to our everyday lives.”

Joe Williams and Rebecca Richardson, Founders of One Running Movement, said: “We are so proud of this new world digital space collaboration and excited about all working together whilst educating and supporting the future generations with our amazing partners.”

One Running Movement is on a mission to encourage all of us to #MoveForLife. Committed to create social change by using the power of movement to improve health, strengthen resilience, build mental health, raise awareness and increase confidence while creating a safe space to move for all backgrounds and sporting abilities is its main aim.
