Your Impact

Jeans for Genes is an opportunity to teach students about STEM, leadership, and compassion for others - all while raising money to help sick kids.

Funds raised go directly to Children's Medical Research Institute to help our scientists find treatments and cures for genetic diseases, including cancer, and other serious conditions affecting 1 in 20 children – that’s nearly one child in every classroom!

Sign up to access downloadable resources that will engage students in STEM activities or support your fundraising efforts. We have something for every age, from preschools and early learning centres to primary and high schools, we provide everything you need to host a fun and educational Jeans for Genes event.


Sign up for a school fundraising page and resources to educate and motivate!


Get parents to share your school fundraising page to their networks and donate to encourage the kids and help find cures!


Download the 100 Skips a Day calendar so each student and class can track their progress throughout August. We'll give a certificate to the top skippers!

Who you're helping

Your support helps the scientists at Children’s Medical Research Institute find cures for genetic diseases, so kids like Teddy, Abbey, Emilia, Amelia, Archer and millions more like them can go back to being kids. Thank you!
