Genetic Disorders UK Jeans For Genes Donation
Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.
There are around 6,000 genetic disorders.
It is estimated that 1 in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder. 30,000 babies and children are newly diagnosed in the UK each year.
Some genetic disorders are apparent at birth while others are diagnosed at different stages throughout childhood, and sometimes into adolescence.
We need your help in supporting these children.
