2019 HKP Turkey Trot Results

The 11th Annual Hampstead Kiwanis Park Turkey Trot was not held last year due to the devastation of Hurricane Florence – help make this year’s race the best yet! Thank you in advance for considering to take part in the 2019 Hampstead Kiwanis Park Turkey Trot. Thousands of dollars have been contributed each year to improving the Hampstead Kiwanis Park.

Since 2007 the Hampstead Turkey Trot has become a tradition for many families and continues to help spread enthusiasm about living an active lifestyle.  The Kiwanis Club of Hampstead may be the organizers of the Turkey Trot, but it is your support that allows the club to provide this wonderful experience for people of all ages.

About the Cause

Hampstead Kiwanis Park, Inc., is a non-profit organization, and all proceeds from the Turkey Trot go to improving the Park. Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world
one child and one community at a time.

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.
