OAK CREEK, Wis. — Members of the Milwaukee-area Sikh (seek') temple where a gunman killed six people last year are now taking registrations for a memorial run marking the first anniversary of the tragedy.

The "Chardhi Kala" run/walk will be six kilometers (3.7 miles), in memory of the six victims. "Chardhi Kala" refers to a sense of resilience and optimism. Participants can now register at www.chardhikala6k.org .

The event will be held Aug. 3, two days before the anniversary of the shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. The event is free, but the Oak Creek temple is accepting donations to fund scholarships in the victims' names.

Other anniversary events will include a candlelight vigil in Oak Creek and an observance at the federal courthouse in Milwaukee.
