Everyone Thinks She’s Nuts!

Eila Campbell of Williamsport, Pennsylvania never thought she’d make it to 94-years-old, but as her birthday approached, she decided that she wanted to do something a little crazy: go skydiving! After all, she knew she wasn’t getting any younger…

“I figured I’ll never make it for another year,” Campbell joked. “Better do it now.”

With that inspiring attitude, she made it official: she would make the 10,000-foot plunge on her 94th birthday for a day that she would never forget.

She Didn’t Do It Alone

Fortunately for Campbell, she has a great family! Her granddaughter Sara Schuelke and her great-granddaughter, Jess Fox, decided that they would make the jump with her.

“This was on her bucket list and there was no way I was missing the most incredible matriarch jumping,” Schuelke said. “I wasn’t going to miss it.”

“It was great, I loved it,” Campbell said enthusiastically. “I would do it again. Everyone already thinks I’m a little nuts anyway.”
