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 in the fall of 2019 and our modified ride in 2021 took place 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 continues to raise necessary funds to advance gene therapy research for rare diseases.

We look forward to bringing Velo back with more participants and guests with the ability to expand the day and offer additional Velo activities for non-riding guests who want to join in!

Join us for a bigger, better and more inclusive Velo Blu 2022, on Friday September 16th!

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.
