THE Kiama branch of the Red Cross has helped mark the organisation's centenary by raising more than $4000 from a recent Fun Run/Walk.

Participants were invited to "set your pace for the human race", while enjoying Kiama's beautiful sights to help celebrate 100 years of Red Cross in Australia.

The Kiama branch organised the Centenary Fun Run/Walk, which took place on June 8. It was the second of three major fund-raisers the Kiama branch is conducting to commemorate the occasion.

The first was a recipe book (all 300 copies of which have sold out), and the third will be a dinner dance in collaboration with the Gerringong branch in August.

The fund-raising walk/run offered two distances; nine kilometres (from Minnamurra) and five kilometres (from Bombo), both ending at Surf Beach.
