Busways supports Jeans for Genes Day 2014

30 Jul 2014

On the first Friday in August each year, workplaces, schools and streets become a sea of denim in a united stance against childhood disease, this year Busways will again join this stance.

Busways proudly supports Jeans for Genes Day and will be encouraging all of its staff to wear Jeans and make a gold coin donation in a celebration of Jeans for Genes day this Friday, 1st August and Busways will be dollar matching all donations up to $1,000.

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. CMRI have helped to pioneer neonatal intensive care units, a key element in the improved survival of premature babies like Rose Brown-Mason from the Busways Marketing departments son Cohen who was born at a tiny but mighty 962 grams at just 26 weeks gestation in 2013.

The vital work of the scientists at CMRI is carried out with the single aim to improve and extend the lives of children everywhere. Currently 1 in 20 children is born with a congenital abnormality or genetic disease, that’s over 20,000 children born in Australia each year. CMRI is dedicated to changing that.

Medical research is the only way to discover cures for conditions affecting children such as cancer, epilepsy and a range of genetic defects.

“I will proudly be wearing my jeans and donating what I can as I am thankful every day for the work that Jeans for Genes day supports, I hope you can join me. “ Rose Brown-Mason Busways Marketing Department.
