Jeans for Genes Day is an annual fundraising campaign by Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by genetic disorders.
The Tuberous Sclerosis Association (TSA) are a proud partner of Genetic Disorders UK, meaning that you can get involved in Jeans for Genes and help raise funds and awareness to support people affected by Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC)!
What is Jeans for Genes Day?
Between Monday 14 – Sunday 20 September 2020, thousands of people around the UK help raise funds for people affected by genetic disorders by asking schools, workplaces or community groups to wear jeans for the week.
If you get involved on behalf of the TSA, half of the proceeds that you raise will go to the TSA!*
*Jeans for Genes Day is a fundraising initiative organised by the UK Genetic Disorders Partnership Network. We are a member of the Partnership, so if you organise for your school or workplace to hold a Jeans for Genes day and they haven’t held one in the last three years, the Tuberous Sclerosis Association receives 50% of the money raised. It’s as simple as that!
