Jeans for Genes Day | 3 Aug 2018

Jeans for Genes Day 2018 will be held on Friday, 3 August.

Now in its 25th year, Jeans for Genes is the iconic fundraising campaign of Children’s Medical Research Institute.

Jeans for Genes was established in 1994 by Children’s Medical Research Institute to fund revolutionary research that helps diagnose, understand, and find cures or treatments for conditions affecting kids, including genetic diseases, cancer, and epilepsy.

1 in 20 kids is born with a genetic disease or birth defect. You likely know and care about someone affected.  Genetic diseases are one of the leading causes of death in kids under four and the main cause of ongoing hospitalisation. To fight this epidemic, we need more research.

The goal in their 25th year is $25 million—enough to create a new centre of collaboration, bringing world-leading scientists and doctors together to help Australian kids with genetic disease.

You can help the work being done at Children’s Medical Research Institute by signing up to raise funds or sell merchandise, by volunteering, or by donating.

Every dollar raised on the day helps scientists at Children’s Medical Research Institute discover treatments and cures, to give every child the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.
