Isle of Palms Connector Run:

Oct. 7, 2023

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

Join our fight against child abuse in the Lowcountry. The Isle of Palms Connector Run will be a challenging road race across the IOP Connector. Starting at 8 AM on the Isle of Palms, crossing into Mount Pleasant and returning to IOP, 10K and 5K runners, walkers and teams of all experience levels and ages will be rewarded with beautiful vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, local creeks, marsh views and waterfowl.

A post-race festival for the whole family will feature  live music, free beer(21+), kids' area, cash prizes, awards ceremony and vendor exhibits.

All funds raised go directly to local organizations for the prevention of child abuse and healing those affected by it. Over the past three decades @ioprun has given back over $1,000,000 to local nonprofits.

 

$92,000 was awarded in 2022 to the following beneficiaries: HALOS, My Sister’s House, Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Florence Crittenton Programs, Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center, Darkness to Light, CAPA Child Abuse Prevention Center, Carolina Youth Development Center, Windwood Family Services, and I GOT LEGS.

Presented by the Isle of Palms Exchange Club, The City of Isle of Palms, and the Town of Mount Pleasant. Let’s get up, get running and keep giving back. IOPrun.com

For the past 31 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.
