Running outdoors and in the neighbourhood, in spite of the darkness at night: this is what innogy’s LEDs Run is all about. For three years now, innogy has organised the run in Essen’s Grugapark to kick off the winter running season. The date for this year has already been set: 27 October 2016.
€1,010 for a good cause – that’s how much hard-earned money innogy and 400 runners at the LEDs Run 2015 made. Participation in the event in Essen’s Grugapark is free, innogy provides the organisation and catering. Participants are asked to either donate money themselves or to find private sponsors. Last year a good €1,000 was made. The money will go towards funding a historical farm that’s being built in the Grugapark. Since 2014, innogy has been supporting the park in Essen: the company funded the modernisation of the park’s lighting, equipping it with the LED technology that gave the run its name. The result: around €12,000 savings for the park and a reduction in CO2 emissions of up to 80 percent.
You are warmly invited to participate on 27 October 2016. The starting whistle will be blown at dusk for the up to 10 kilometre LEDs Run. Taking part is the most important thing – innogy is looking forward to seeing you there!
