The Isle of Palms Connector Run is right around the corner. For the past 27 years, the IOP Run has been dedicated to serving the Lowcountry community and protecting its most vulnerable citizens: children. The Isle of Palms Exchange Club officially invites everyone to come out to participate in this year’s event, scheduled for October 6 at 8:00 AM.
Participants can choose between a 5K run/walk or a 10K run that features one of the most scenic courses in the southeast. Race alongside 1,400 members of the community while getting a unique, undisturbed opportunity to view the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway.
After you complete the race, cool down with a complimentary beer (21+) while celebrating all of your accomplishments at the official 2019 IOP Run Afterparty. The after-party will feature age group awards, cash prizes, live music, kids’ fun, and beer & bratwurst. The IOP Run afterparty is a great way to get a taste of the Island, have some fun, and get to know fellow community members who share similar interest.
This year the IOP Run will be benefiting the following organizations Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Dee Norton Center, Halos, CAPA of Beaufort, Darkness to Light, Carolina Youth Development Center, Windwood Farms. Race officials are excited to announce that Adam Gorlitsky of I GOT LEGS will be participating as part of his 1 million steps tour.
Adam Gorlitsky was left paralyzed due to a life-changing car accident in 2005 and is now using a robotic exoskeleton to walk One-Million Steps in road races throughout the country to raise awareness and funds for his nonprofit organization; I GOT LEGS. This year Adam will be participating in the 2019 IOP Run using his exoskeleton to complete the race alongside other runners, adding towards his one-million step goal. With a shared passion for assisting those in need, the IOP Run and I GOT LEGS will be working together to educate the community and create positive change. (Credit: Island Eye News)
