Paoli Native to be Honored Through 5K


On April 13, 2019, the HeARTland Hustle will be sponsoring the first annual Space Race, a space-themed 5K run and walk in honor of Paoli native Margaret Hamilton, who wrote the code for the Apollo program. The walk will take place at Maria Radcliffe Park. Art from local artists, youth groups, studios and schools will be displayed through the trail.

The run will take place at 9 a.m. Cost is $25 for adults and $20 for minors. However, the price will jump to $35 the day of the race. All proceeds with benefit the Let Music Speak organization and the Black Vulture Project.

Post-race activities include a health fair in the park accompanied by live music.
