At Planet-U Energy we like to think big, because we can’t change the world by thinking small.
Every so often you cross paths with like-minded people with the same values and visions, and that’s exactly what happened when we started chatting to the founders of One Running Movement (ORM), Rebecca Richardson and Joe Williams.
One Running Movement is a collaborative evolution for movement and change #MoveForLife
ORM was established in 2017 to help to create more active communities and support the creation of healthy habits, utilising the power of movement to improve both physical and mental health. ORM delivered a number of live events during 2018 and 2019, and successfully encouraged runners of all ages and levels to keep active, set and achieve new goals during the 2020 lockdown and beyond with virtual movement activations.
We have been working together on a number of initiatives all built around three pillars of improving health, saving the planet and creating more movers through B2B collaborations.
Our focuses at Planet-U Energy with One Running Movement are to support and facilitate ORM, Energy For Movement and Run For Climate Change.
Energy For Movement
A shared aim of our innovative partnership with One Running Movement is generating gifted activity places for children and young adults across the UK through the Energy For Movement business to business initiative. Any businesses signing up to be MOVERS with ORM and switching to renewable energy with Planet-U Energy, will not only see a reduction in their annual energy bills but Planet-U will donate a percent of their annual bill costs, towards free places for children and young adults.
ENERGY = helping UK businesses to save time and money on renewable utilities (gas & electric) they must have and pay for to function
FOR (Planet)= helping to Save the Planet with a switch to Planet-U Energy’s renewable energy contracts
MOVEMENT = helping to get all ages to become Movers #MoveForLife through ORM funded programmes
We are here to help business leaders save money and reduce their carbon footprint, by switching to renewable energy and using the latest sustainable energy technologies and encourage joining Energy For Movement through One Running Movement.
Run for Climate Change
Run for Climate Change is a new annual event organised by One Running Movement, with the first edition taking place virtually this year. There is one huge point of difference with this virtual event – runners don’t just get a wooden medal (ethically and sustainably sourced whilst supporting local communities), for every entry received we plant a tree at our Yorkshire location with a biodegradable plaque featuring the runner’s name. The organisers also donate a % of the entry fee to environmental and mental health charities, with Samaritans and Surfers Against Sewage confirmed as the benefiting charities for Run for Climate Change 2020.
Running and movement are known to positively impact mental health, and it’s no coincidence that registrations for Run for Climate Change 2020 opened on World Mental Health Day, which is observed on 10th October each year.
Runners of all ages can sign up to run a chosen distance (5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon) in line with their health and wellbeing goals, and by doing so they contribute to the following:
Go to the ORM website for further details about the different entry packages for individuals, families and businesses.
Many of our employees and renewable energy experts here at Planet-U Energy will also be taking part, so watch this space!
