The yearly event raises awareness of genetic disorders and the money raised funds a range of initiatives that improve the quality of life of half a million children affected by genetic disorders. The charity says that it is estimated that one in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder and therefore 30,000 babies & children are newly diagnosed each year.
