STAFF from First National Ararat will be donning their jeans and their hoodies to show support for Jeans for Genes Day this Friday.
It’s Jeans for Genes Day’s 21st birthday this year and is a national day when people wear their jeans to raise much-needed funds for research into birth defects and diseases such as cancer, epilepsy and a range of genetic disorders.
Every dollar raised on the day helps scientists at Children’s Medical Research Institute discover treatments and cures, to give every child the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.
The staff at First National will be wearing special Jeans for Genes hoodies and of course their denim and will run a barbecue this Friday from 12noon to 2pm to raise funds for research into childhood diseases.
Come along and show your support and even dare to wear double denim!
