Due to a jammed packed spring school schedule of events, Central will host its sixth annual Autism Walk and TIN (Teachers in Need) festival simulaneoulsy on April 28.

The Autism Walk works with a Downers Grove autism center named Charlie’s Gift , which is also a sector of the Hinsdale Community House.

“This event originated as a Hinsdale central event, but has gained so much traction with its efforts that it has become a full-blown community fundraiser,” said Daniel Menza, senior and a leader of the walk.

While the Autism Walk works with community members, TIN is an event that was created to support teachers at Central.

“The funds from this event support teachers, staff, [and] custodial folks with catastrophic health issues not covered by insurance,” said Mrs. Pam Kalafut, activities director. It was started in 2005 by junior and senior students to support three teachers with their respective health issues, according to Kalafut. There will be inflatables, contests, and games.

“We are looking forward to partnering up with the Community House and Autism Walk this year. We are hoping that we can help each other increase attendance at both events. We have had a lot of student interests and are always looking for new members to join our team,” said Mary Kate Doyle in the Special Education Department.

“I think it’s phenomenal because not only are we benefitting two local charities, but we also are able to fill [that Sunday] with so many exciting activities that enriches our unified overall objective,” Menza said.
