Local people working to make a difference for local people!

To make the Bundaberg Sugar Cane2Coral the successful event it is requires a lot of people hours from the Organising Committee and advice from the larger Cane to Coral Inc Committee.

Kerry Short Life Time Member (Founder)

Kerry and Neil Rowland conceived the idea of the Cane2Coral in 2010 – an event that has seen some 7500 competitors participate. His working life of 36 years was spent in secondary education as a PE Teacher, Sports Master, swimming and Rugby League (coaching to state level), sports administration (co-ordinating regional and state titles), guidance and career counselling and acting Deputy Principal.


Kerry has been an active and respected member of the Bundaberg business and sporting community since arriving in 1966.  He is past President and Life Member of Bundaberg Surf Lifesaving Club and was instrumental in establishing Bundaberg Social Touch Football.


His “get in and do” attitude, infectious enthusiasm and wide circle of contacts have ensured the ready access to volunteers and not only the sustainability but the growth of the event.  He wants to see the Cane2Coral event become the most popular fun Run/Walk in regional Queensland.


Kerry is not currently an active on the committee but remains as a Life-Time Member
