Jeans for Genes Day

The first Friday in August is Jeans for Genes Day, the day you get to wear jeans to work for a great cause: finding cures for children’s diseases. Jeans for Genes Day is a FUNdraising day for the Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI).

Chances are you probably know someone who has a genetic disease, because one in twenty children are born with some form of genetic fault. There are children with leukaemia, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis and many other disorders.
The scientists at the Children’s Medical Research Institute are working to try to prevent these diseases before they occur in children, or where that is not possible to develop better treatments.
The money raised from Jeans for Genes Day goes towards the work of these scientists.
You are part of every discovery we make.

Please support this great cause!!
