The National Parks and Wildlife Service in Jindabyne raised more than $300 through donations and selling merchandise at a Jeans for genes morning tea.
Jeans for Genes 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. It is annual event where every dollar raised on the day helps scientists at the Children's Medical Research Institute discover treatments and cures to give every child the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.
Snowy Region Visitor Centre got behind this worthwhile cause with a morning tea held at the Visitors Centre. Park staff made cakes and slices then made a donation for wearing their jeans.
The morning tea was sponsored by Parc Cafe, Mitre 10, Larry Adler with prizes given out on the day.
