15th September 2020

What’s your favourite? Bleached or stonewashed? Straight or skinny? Bootcut or boyfriend?

Whatever your preference, it’s time to dress yourself in denim (double if you wish) for Jeans for Genes Day, the annual fundraising event for Genetic Disorders UK, whose aim is to transform the lives of children who have a genetic disorder.

You can wear your genes any day (or all of them) between 14th and 20th September this year to show your support, and the website ( https://www.jeansforgenesday.org/ ) has a wealth of ideas to help with fundraising.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Jeans for Genes, which is particularly fitting as it’s estimated that 1 in 25 children in the UK are affected by a genetic disorder.

Solaris Health has been active in the genetic diseases field for over 15 years and we were fortunate to work on the first autologous gene therapy to be launched in the European Union. Over time, we have been involved in a wide variety of areas including Gaucher and Pompe disease, neurofibromatosis, severe combined immunodeficiencies, and the muscular dystrophies. We’ll definitely be wearing denim for Jeans for Genes (hope they still fit!).
