Young­sters wear jeans for genes

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

KIDS at a South Lake child­care cen­tre did their bit for their fel­low ju­niors last week, dress­ing up in jeans to raise money for the Chil­dren’s Med­i­cal Re­search In­sti­tute.

Jeans for Genes Day has been held for 22 years, help­ing to raise more than $62 mil­lion.

The money goes to sci­en­tists work­ing to find treat­ments and cures for sick chil­dren.

Bug­gles team leader Jackie Desousa Fer­reira said the cen- tre had taken part for the past four years.

“Ev­ery­one gets in­volved for a good cause,” she said.
