The 4th annual Run Too Overcome (Together Overcoming Obstacles), benefiting CMS North Learning Community Schools, will take place Saturday, March 17. All race proceeds are given directly to participating Special Needs Departments to purchase supplies and equipment for their classrooms. The mission of the Run Too Overcome is to provide awareness and support for the children, families, and teachers whom meet the daily challenges, and celebrate the joys, of supporting our special needs community. The Run Too Overcome unites our community each year to raise funds to provide our special needs teachers with the equipment and supplies needed to provide differentiated instruction to enrich and engage students of all ability levels. The North Charlotte/Lake Norman Learning Community thanks our teachers for their compassion, support, and dedication to our children. We define an exceptional child as one with any disability; disorder; difference; developmental delay; behavior/attention/sensory problem; or any other issue hindering his/her life experiences, learning or development.
