May 19 is ‘jeans for genes day’

To help raise awareness of cystic fibrosis, Friday, May 19, is “Jeans for Genes Day.” For a $5 donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, you can wear jeans and get a sticker to help raise awareness for this condition that affects approximately 30,000 U.S. individuals. While there is no cure, great strides have been made into research to help extend and improve the lives of patients with cystic fibrosis. To participate in “Jeans for Genes Day,” please email Christina Barton, business support specialist, at bartonch@mst.edu or Kimber Crull, communications specialist, at krox93@mst.edu. They will visit areas on May 19 to pick up donations and hand out stickers.
