What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.

About Blue Sea Waterloo

Blue Sea Foundation is proud to play host to the 16th annual Ride for Refuge in wonderful Waterloo Region.


Welcome! BSF doesn't actively fundraise in this event but through our generous sponsors and with the leadership and support of our event directors Kristen Smith + Kyla Arsenault along with our staff team, we work hard to plan and lead a great event with 100 needed volunteers for the expected 50+ charities, team captains, and 1000+ participants who fundraise $350,000 or more each fall.#kwproud #oct5 #ride19
