The Run for Attention is now in its 4th year. An event created to bring awareness to the loving services of The Palmetto School (formerly the CAH Charter Schoo), it has drawn over 1000 participants and 100+ volunteers while raising over $37,000 in the last three years.

The 2013 event will be one of the last events at Knights Stadium. It will feature a timed 5k race on the USATF sanctioned course (walkers welcome), as well as a 1 mile walk/run and family fun zone! All proceeds will benefit The Palmetto School, giving a voice to abused and neglected children throughout the Carolinas.

 

 

 

The Run for Attention isn’t just another charity run. Yes, we are raising funds to support the amazing services provided by The Palmetto School. But our true aim is to be a voice, a voice for the hundreds of children that have come through their doors. Those silenced by abuse. Those too weak to speak due to neglect. This race and all the sponsors, participants and volunteers that make it happen are bringing their plight to the forefront, letting those kids know they don’t need to be silent anymore. We want to empower the victims of abuse and neglect to change their silent whisper to a roar, “We are victims no more!” 

At The Palmetto School at the Children’s Attention Home Charter School, they are encouraged to do just that, to rise above their circumstance. Through individualized academic programs that take each story into consideration, students are given the tools they need to stimulate academic achievement and personal empowerment.

Sadly, many child victims of abuse, abandonment, neglect, and homelessness come from situations where education simply cannot be a priority. As a result, many fall behind or lose interest in school altogether. The Palmetto School gives these children one-on-one and small group instruction to bridge the gaps left by their past trauma and situations. It is the goal of The Palmetto School to see these students prosper both academically and personally, and through specialized curricula, they have helped these children succeed for eight years.
