For the past 29 years, the local Exchange Club has brought together individuals from all over the Charleston area to stop abuse to the Lowcountry’s most defenseless citizens: the children of the Charleston area. This year, the 5K & 10K #IOPrun for prevention of child abuse will offer a virtual option as well as the in-person race along the Isle of Palms connector bridge on Saturday, October 2nd, 2021.
After a year like no other, we are excited to host a hybrid event – both in-person and virtual – to allow for members of our community to participate in any way they feel comfortable.
The sponsors and participants of the Isle of Palms Connector Run and Walk for the Child are the 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.

For the past 29 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.
