Last Friday 7 August Bellberry staff again wore jeans in support of national Jeans for Gene’s day. Jeans for Genes (Australia) was born in 1994 to support research into genetic diseases, birth defects and cancers at Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI).
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 money to support research at CMRI. All money raised by Jeans for Genes goes directly to CMRI to ensure valuable research into conditions like epilepsy, cancer and birth defects can continue. Over $200,000 has already been raised by this years event!
Bellberry staff enjoyed a jeans inspired morning tea which included Operation Manager Trina O’Donnell’s wonderful jeans cake (below). Thanks everyone for your support!
