Mother’s Day Classic – 12 May 2013

Dear family and friends

This year, in loving memory of Leisl, PANDORA has decided to get a team together to participate in the Mother’s Day Classic Fun Run and Walk which will be taking place in the Domain on 12th May. The event is a 4km or 8km walk or run from Macquarie Street to Mrs Macquarie’s chair and back to the Domain.

I would be delighted if you would like to join with me, the kids and the rest of the PANDORA team to take part in this worthwhile event. Each member of the team will be provided with a pink PANDORA T shirt to wear on the day. They will have a marquee set up as a meeting place and will provide drinks and snacks after the event.

Use the form below to let me know you are interested, and I will forward you specific details about how to register :)

Leisl Gerdes Commemorative Pendant

Leisl Gerdes (LG) exudes a vibrant, cheeky, fearless, kind & optimistic spirit. That twinkle in her eye says that ‘Life’s Good’ (LG)! Using Leisl’s initials and her courageous character as inspiration, a pendant has been designed to celebrate Leisl’s life and our friendship, respect and memory of her.

This pendant has been designed and manufactured locally by Leisl’s friends. The back of the pendant is highly polished and suitable for personalised engraving. The bail is large enough to fit many styles of chain (not included).

The Life’s Good pendant provides us with a wonderful opportunity to support Leisl’s family. All profits from the sale of the pendant will go to the Leisl Gerdes Trust**.

A Life’s Good pendant was given to Leisl. On the back she has engraved her legacy to us all…….
