Isle of Palms Connector Run: October 2nd, 2021 

A 5K & 10K Charity Race to Raise Money For the Healing and Prevention of Child Abuse in Charleston, SC 

Community of Support

The sponsors and participants of the Isle of Palms Connector Run and Walk for the Child are true heroes to the Lowcountry’s most defenseless citizens: the children of the Charleston area. Over the past two decades, our race has donated over $1,000,000 to local nonprofits working to heal the children and families of the Lowcountry that have been harmed by child abuse.

Although our event is picturesque and showcases a healthy lifestyle for our community;  what you need to know is that the contributions, promotions, participation and the support of our sponsors are vital to the success of our main mission: The prevention of child abuse and healing those affected in and around Charleston. Our event is held every year because of the continual dedication by our community members to stop child abuse.

For the past 27 years, the IOP Run has been dedicated to giving back. 

Since the birth of the Isle of Palms Connector Run, we have always had one goal in mind - the prevention of child abuse and healing those affected by it. We achieve this goal by donating proceeds from the race to local nonprofits who strive to better the lives of children in the Lowcountry. Click the button below to learn more about the 2019 beneficiaries.
