The Run for Attention isn’t just another charity run. Yes, we are raising funds to support the amazing services provided by the CAH Charter 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 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 Children’s Attention Home Charter 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 Charter School to see these students prosper both academically and personally, and through specialized curricula, they have helped these children succeed for seven years
