On the first Friday of August, each year, Jeans for Genes Day is celebrated. People all over Australia are invited to dress in jeans for work or school to raise money for the Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI).
The CMRI is a superb organisation conducting vital research into children’s health. One in 20 children are born with a birth defect or genetic disease and the CMRI aims to cure childhood diseases.
And they believe they will do just that. As a result of medical research, diseases such as polio, diphtheria and smallpox are a thing of the past.
Over the past 60 years, the CMRI has achieved some extraordinary medical advances including creating the first research unit for newborns which dramatically improved premature baby survival rates.
But they need your help to advance further, so why not get your workplace involved in Jeans for Genes Day?
