The Pleasantville Elementary PTO drew a large crowd for its first Color Run on Saturday, Sept. 7.

The Pleasantville Dance Team painted children’s faces and adorned arms with glitter tattoos before the race in Webb Shadle Park, and Matt’s Mobile Music provided energetic tunes to pump up the crowd. Community members of all ages attended the event.

Water, snacks and door prizes were also given to participants at the conclusion of the race. Door prize donations were made by Peoples Bank, Murphy’s Plate, Pleasantville Fitness, Smokey Row, Tournament Tackle, Pleasantville Auto, Webb Shadle Library and Lakefront Living.

Funds raised at the event will help teachers with school supplies, activities and meals for students.
