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. Save the date, get ready to wear your denim and help the 1 in 20 kids who are born with a birth defect or genetic disease.
