Don't have anything to do on June 15? There are at least two unique fitness opportunities planned in Tyler that day.

The Color Up 5K, a color-themed fun run, will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Tyler Rose Garden, 420 Rose Park Drive. The event has individuals or teams running while dressed in white and being doused with color bombs made of colored cornstarch. Participants receive a T-shirt, a race bib and a bag of Color Up powder for the "color party" at the end of the race. See for more information.

From 2 to 4 p.m., Zumba fanatics can enjoy two full hours of dancing at Dance for OK, a Zumba charity event. Instructors from Tyler, Longview, Marshall, Lufkin and Palestine will lead the dance session at the Herrington Patriot Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Tyler, 3900 University Blvd., to raise money for victims of the May 20 tornado that ripped through Moore, Okla. The cost is $10 and all proceeds go to Mission Tyler to assist the victims. Visit to register.
