About the Cause

The Hampstead Kiwanis are 100% dedicated to our community. All proceeds from the race directly go to improve the Hampstead Kiwanis Park fitness stations, walking path, ball fields and children’s playground.

Hampstead Kiwanis Park is an 82 acre parcel of property that was donated to the Kiwanis Club of Hampstead by the Tommie Little and Bill Clark Families. The Park offers a healthy, quality environment for the entire community and has established relationships with existing local organized youth sports programs.
