Tea for Blu

A Signature BLU Event in support of Blu Genes Foundation, TEA FOR BLU is an afternoon of socializing, traditional tea service, fun activations with special guest medical superstars.

Our second annual Tea for Blu will take place in 2022.  We may not be able to gather together as we had hoped to do this year, but we will have a wonderful and safe event for our supporters and friends to join, learn about the great new research for Tay-Sachs disease and help to truly make a difference.  Check back on our site this spring for more information on our online fundraisiing event, BLU & YOU!

Sponsorship opportunities available.

Velo Blu

A Signature BLU Event, VELO BLU is a charity ride and celebratory event that is designed to impress with the high-end experiences for each rider and event guest.

Velo Blu allows multiple routes for all cyclists to enjoy the ride with the option of adding a challenge. Our inaugural ride took place in the fall of 2019 at the beautiful Peller Estates Winery, where riders were guided on a challenging scenic ride through Niagara-on-the-lake, culminating back for a celebration with great, food, wine, company and sense of accomplishment. Velo Blu 2021 was tremendous success and we were thrilled to host a modified ride to raise important funds to advance research for Tay-Sachs disease. We look forward to a bigger, better and more inclusive Velo Blu 2022, join us!

Blu & You was Blu Genes Foundation’s Online Fundraising Event created for 2021. To keep everyone safe while still raising much-needed funds, we created BLU & YOU in lieu of our Tea for Blu. We are excited to celebrate and sip tea with all of our Tea for Blu supporters in the spring of 2022.

Blu Genes has joined with SickKids to support gene editing experts in finding a treatment and cure for Tay-Sachs Disease. Despite the pandemic, research continues and we need your support.

BLU & YOU was successful in raising over $90,000 to support ground-breaking research focused on a new treatment with curative potential.
