She Celebrated Her 100th Birthday By Jumping Out Of A Plane… But What She Did Next Was Gutsy.

Most of us dream of staying healthy and active well into our senior years. When you're young, it's easy to imagine yourself staying adventurous as an older person - but usually, illness, incapacitation, and fatigue deem it otherwise.

At 100 years old, Georgina Harwood has broken the mold, and given us all something to strive for.

Harwood spent her 100th birthday in a red jumpsuit, flying through the sky over Cape Town. Diving in tandem with another, Harwood was also surrounded by her brave family and friends during the dive. And this wasn't her first rodeo: Harwood did her first jump when she was 92 years old. As if that weren't impressive enough, she also celebrated her hundredth year by shark cage diving. That's more adventure at age 100 than most of us have in a lifetime. Happy Birthday, Georgina: Keep being awesome.
