On Friday October 6th everyone in the UK is encouraged to wear jeans to school or work as a part of Jeans For Genes Day. Anyone wearing jeans is asked to make a contribution (£2 for adult and £1 for children) which will be used to fund medical research into a variety of genetic conditions such as muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis. The goal this year is to raise £4million which will be distributed amongst charities such as Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, SPARKS, WellChild and the Fragile X Society.
