Martha is Celebrating Her 77th Birthday on WDSD

Martha Nearly 77 Takes on a 5kWe are so excited to be celebrating Martha Cronemiller's 77th birthday at our 3/21 Over 21 Party! That is right, her birthday is World Down Syndrome Day. Believed to be one of the oldest persons with Down syndrome in the United States, Martha was born in Georgia at a time when there were not a lot of opportunities for people with Down syndrome. Martha has lived in several group homes throughout her life. She is a hat collector and loves the color red. She participates in community activities, including a recent 5k! She is fond of naps, but she perks up when visiting friends and meeting new people. Everyone loves Martha!

We are told she loves her birthdays and cake and were warned not to forget the ice cream! Come help us wish Martha very happy birthday and World Down Syndrome Day at our 3/21 Over 21 Party.
