One Running Movement’s partnership with Smart Ring pioneers RingPay by McLEAR, which was officially announced in January this year, has been evolving over the last few months with both parties working together to drive the movement forwards and to increase regular physical activity for current and future generations to #MoveForLife
McLEAR is the pioneer of wearable payment technology for consumers and businesses, and every McLEAR Smart Ring purchased via this dedicated page contributes to generating free ballot places for movers through One Running Movement, for everyone from the age of 4 upwards.
McLEAR has also been confirmed as a partner on Run for Climate Change, which is the latest programme launched by One Running Movement. Run For Climate Change is a new annual event, with the first edition taking place virtually this year where runners don’t just get rewarded with a sustainably sourced medal but also get a tree planted in their name (or dedicated to a loved one) by Planet-U Energy at a Yorkshire location. Runners of all ages can sign up to run a chosen distance of 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon, with benefits for the planet, communities, charities and their own wellbeing.
In addition to the generation of free places through the purchase of a McLEAR Smart Ring via the dedicated page, McLEAR have also chosen a One Running Movement charity partner collaboration as one of the benefiting organisations for their new RingPay Giving feature.
The RingPay Giving feature, launched in partnership with Parsnip (getparsnip.com), allows Ring holders to automatically send a micro-sized donation to their chosen charity when they make a purchase using their Smart Ring. Ring holders control how much they give using monthly donation caps. Any donations made to One Running Movements’s preferred charity, DigiLearning Foundation will contribute to free technology education courses for children, young adults and adults.
Joe Williams and Rebecca Richardson, Founders of One Running Movement, said: “We enjoy working with McLEAR, who are pioneers in their industry like us and we love the new RingPay features. Evolution, education and technology are hugely important to us at One Running Movement, and we would like to thank McLEAR for their continued support”.
“Carrying payment on your fingers and removing the need for cash, payment cards or getting your phone out is more relevant than ever before – if you can contribute to getting children aged 4 to 16 active through purchasing or using your Smart Ring then that’s another bonus!“
Daniel Blondell, Chief Operating Officer said: “We are proud to be working with One Running Movement and helping all ages to #MoveForLife more”.
“The mission with RingPay is to improve the payment experience; making it faster, effortless and more rewarding. Whether commuting to work, picking up some essentials or off on your travels, RingPay by McLEAR gives you peace of mind knowing your finances are safely in-hand. Just kick back and fist pump your way to better spending and awesome rewards.”
McLEAR invented the Smart Ring in 2012, which is designed and manufactured to be water and shock resistant and requires no battery; making it the ideal wearable payment device that fits seamlessly into any lifestyle. Ring holders can set rules and manage their Ring through a dedicated app, which also gives them access to numerous exclusive features and benefits.
