About Blue Sea Calgary

Blue Sea Foundation is proud to play host to our 7th annual Ride for Refuge in wonderful Calgary


Welcome! Blue Sea doesn't actively fundraise in this event but through our generous sponsors and with the leadership of our event director Samantha Jones and friends, we work hard with 70 needed volunteers to plan and lead a great event for the expected 30+ charities, team captains and 450+ participants who fundraise more than $150,000 plus each fall. #Calgaryproud #oct5 #ride19 #RFRyyc

This 10 KM is mostly flat and would be easily ridden by older children and their families.
