Kids Choice childcare centre Mooroopna children get into spirit of Jeans for Genes Day.SIONNIE KELLY August 2, 2014 3:55am
Children were decked out in denim for Jeans for Genes Day at Mooroopna’s Kids Choice childcare centre yesterday.
Jeans for Genes Day is a campaign that has been raising money for research into genetic diseases for 21 years.
‘‘We asked parents to send their children in their favourite jeans to support Jeans for Genes Day,’’ Kids Choice director Steph Gayani said.
The centre also had Jeans for Genes Day merchandise available to buy.
‘‘If they want a pen or a badge they can purchase it and all the money will go to the fundraising place in Melbourne,’’ Ms Gayani said.
It was a fun day for children who got to participate in craft activities and talk about what Jeans for Genes Day was about.
Parent Narelle Morna said she was happy to take her son Reece Sellars along to the childcare centre to support the cause.
‘‘It gets everyone together, it gets all the kids involved and they’re all wearing jeans today, so it’s got the parents involved as well,’’ she said.
‘‘It’s a good cause for the children and having children myself and grandchildren as well I thought it would be a good thing.’’
