About Us

Ks for Kids is all about getting active and helping find answers for the 6000 childhood genetic diseases and cancers that impact 1 in 20 Aussie kids.

By stepping up in May, you’ll be supporting Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) to advance the treatment and prevention of childhood diseases, so every child has the opportunity for a healthy start to life.

CMRI pioneered microsurgery, immunisations against lethal childhood illnesses and care for premature babies, all of which has improved the lives of countless Australian children over the last 60 years. Today, CMRI is the site of world-leading research in areas such as cancer, neurobiology, embryology, genomics and gene therapy.

Thank you for taking 6,000 steps this May to help continue our vital work!
