Jeans for Genes Day Friday 4 August 2017

Monday, July 31st, 2017

Ready to don your favourite item of treasured denim? On Friday the 4th of August the Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) is holding Jeans for Genes day around Australia.

Jeans for Genes day was instigated by the CMRI with the desire to continue research in the areas of genetic defects and childhood diseases so children globally can remain healthy.

One child out of twenty is born with a birth defect or genetic disease, on average that is one child per classroom.

Why is what the CMRI so important for children’s health? Through every dollar raised, they strive through their team of scientists to discover and develop cures to assist children that are being challenged by various serious health issues.

The dedicated team at the CMRI are determined to continue work for epilepsy, birth defects, childhood cancer and genetic defects so that children today and those of tomorrow can experience a better future.

Advances in paediatric health came about due to efforts made through medical research. illnesses that used to be fatal such as polio, small pox and diptheria were relegated to medical history largely through the persistent efforts of the teams at CMRI

The amazing team at the CMRI require valuable funding to continue their pioneering work, so any involvement with this worthwhile cause will make a difference big or small!
