Finding cures for children's genetic diseases


Essential Baby & Toddler Show – Melbourne

05/Apr/2019, Melbourne Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton  

​Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) and Jeans for Genes are now the official charity partners of the Essential Baby and Toddler Show – which means we get to educate a huge audience about the importance of research and how it will help children with genetic diseases.

Taking place in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, the show offers attendees a fantastic day out for the whole family at Australia’s favourite parenting event. 

The second event will take place in Melbourne:

5th - 7th April 2019
Melbourne Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton

Wherever you are in your pregnancy journey the show is the perfect one-stop-shop for all your needs – whether it’s expert advice, exclusive shopping deals or simply a fun day out for the entire family.

As official charity partner CMRI and Jeans for Genes will have a presence at each location. We encourage attendees to:
  • Visit the Jeans for Genes stand at the Show and take advantage of a unique ‘Sew & Go’ embroidery service to personalise a variety of items including denim bibs and teddy bears on the spot. A gift-wrapping service will also be available for a gold coin donation.

  • Volunteer at the Show and work side by side with the scientists. Register your interest

  • Join us in donating to Children’s Medical Research Institute/ Jeans for Genes. Every dollar makes a difference.
