Event Details

Jeans for Genes Day 2019 will be on Friday, 2nd August!

Jeans for Genes (Australia) was born out of a brainstorming session in 1993 to support research into genetic diseases, birth defects and cancers at Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI).

Today it is a much loved and recognised national day in the Australian calendar. Jeans for Genes Day is held on the first Friday in August each year and continues to be a major fund-raiser of CMRI. On this day, people are asked to wear their jeans and donate to support research at CMRI.

All money raised by Jeans for Genes goes directly to CMRI to make sure valuable research into conditions like epilepsy, cancer and birth defects can continue.

1 in 20 Australians are born with a birth defect or genetic disease.

Since the campaign started it has raised more than $60 million in support of CMRI


Wear your favourite Jeans to Kindy on Friday 2nd August.

Please join us in supporting this important research.

Please drop your donation in the Donation Bucket at Reception.
