Raising Funds for the Team GIVE’R Foundation


We have created this foundation in honour of our friend, Kenneth McAlpine.


The word GIVE’R has two meanings; give it all you got, 100%, full commitment and Give Back to those in need! Kenneth was the ultimate Give Back guy. He demonstrated this kind, wholehearted behavior on a daily basis in every community he joined.


We focus on his two biggest passions in life; cooking and skiing by supporting and giving back to those in need. These people are either looking to pursue culinary arts as a career or get into the sport of skiing or advance their skillsets to new levels.

Kenneth’s Walk on Saturday September 23

It’s a Saturday afternoon 2.5 km guided walk around Duntroon Highlands with friends and family in small groups of 20-25.


Groups start from one of the 6 sampling stations at noon.  They move to the next station every 35 minutes.  Each station features the delicious creations from a local chef paired with a local beverage.


During the walk, enjoy the company of great friends, family and memories while enjoying the fresh air, fall colours and breathtaking views. 


Enjoy the apres!
