The first annual event will serve the community as both a run/walk and an outdoor art exhibit
featuring original works inspired by outer space and the exploration thereof. This theme is in
honor of Margaret Hamilton, the computer scientist who developed the software used in the
Apollo space program and moon landing operations from 1969 to 1972. Ms. Hamilton, a
Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and Paoli Native, is also the subject of a permanent
mural to be unveiled in conjunction with the HeARTland Hustle event.
There are many ways to participate in the event! Runners, walkers and exercise enthusiasts of
all kinds can register for the race. Artists of all ages and experience levels, from youth to
professional, are encouraged to submit art for the exhibit; all artists will be credited for their
work. Winners of the race from each age group, along with top fundraising teams, will be
recognized at the race’s conclusion. The day’s festivities will also include various forms of
entertainment, music and guest speakers. Kids ages 12 and under may participate in the race
FREE OF CHARGE.
All proceeds from The HeARTland Hustle go to support Let Music Speak and Black Vulture
Project, the local organizations that produce and present PaoliFest. PaoliFest is the free annual
music, art and film festival whose 2018 debut was marked with the astounding attendance of
more than 1,300 people from all over the country. PaoliFest 2019 will take place on August 9 and
10, 2019 in JayCee Park in downtown Paoli.
