Jeans for Genes Day!
In the UK, Jeans for Genes is a national children’s charity which raises money for the care of children and families who are affected by genetic disorders. It also supports ground-breaking research into the causes and cures for these disorders. Since it became a national appeal in 1996, Jeans for Genes has raised more than £33million.
Genetic disorders affect 1 in 33 children born in the UK and include conditions such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anaemia and muscular dystrophy. More than half of all childhood deaths in the UK are related to genetic conditions.
The charity’s main fundraising event is Jeans for Genes Day which takes place on the first Friday of October. Millions of people across the UK make a small donation to wear their jeans to work and to school.
