Finding cures for children's genetic diseases

About Us

Jeans for Genes

During the last 25 years, more than 12,000 schools, 20,000 individuals and 41,000 workplaces have taken part in Jeans for Genes and raised $60 million for vital medical research.

In 2018, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the iconic Jeans for Genes campaign, Children’s Medical Research Institute wants to raise $25 million for a new Centre of Collaboration. This Centre will help bring genetic research and hospitals together to better treat Aussie kids with genetic diseases like metabolic disorders, blood disorders, inherited blindness, and cancer.

We are asking all Australians to save the date, Friday 3rd August, and get ready to wear your denim to help the 1 in 20 kids who are born with a birth defect or genetic disease.
