Benefiting ENSAAF INC

Please join Ensaaf in our second annual 5K fundraising walk on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at Lake Elizabeth, Central Park, Fremont, CA. The walk, Appear for the Disappeared, is open for registration. Walk locally, or walk virtually, and commemorate a specific individual who was disappeared in Punjab by Indian security forces during the Decade of Disappearances. This year's event is sponsored by the family of Kuljit Singh Dhatt, on the 25th anniversary of his disappearance.

When you register, you will be able to create your own fundraising page that you can share with your family and friends to ask for donations that will support our project to document every disappearance and unlawful killing in Punjab. You will receive an email with the bio of a victim of disappearance in whose honor you will be walking and fundraising--please add that bio to your fundraising page.

Other ways to help

If you are unable to make it to the race or walk virtually, there are still many ways to show solidarity:

1. You can create your own Appear for the Disappeared 5K fundraising page through FirstGiving for free and even participate in our top-fundraiser contest! Just click the green register button at the top of the page, select "I registered offline and need to create a fundraising page," and follow the prompts to create your page. This will not register you for the 5K and you will not be charged, but you will have access to all of FirstGiving's fundraising tools. 

2. Consider making a donation to Ensaaf by clicking here

3. Make a donation directly to a walker by visiting his or her individual fundraising page.

4. Finally, one of the best ways to show your support is by sharing the Appear for the Disappeared 5K with others by posting it on your social media accounts.
