3 Daring Seniors We Wanna Be When We Grow Up

You might think everyone wants to be young and hip in 2017, but, actually plenty of seniors are living their best lives right now! Check out this video of 94 year old Eila Campbell who recently celebrated her birthday by jumping out of a plane with Pennsylvania's Above the Poconos skydivers! What!

If you think Eila's the only kick-butt senior taking on daring stunts, you're wrong. You'll be getting ready to say you wish you were 30, 40, even 50 years older when you watch these other videos of seniors taking on stunts like you've never seen.

1. Ninjas Know No Age

American Ninja Warrior is a fascinating and popular sport that spans all ages. One man who took on the famous ANW obstacle course: 64 year old John Loobey. So, if your go to excuse for ditching a new workout regiment is that "you're too old", you might need a new excuse after watching John's moves.

2. Vicki Edney Takes On the CN Tower

Talk about living life on the edge! To celebrate her birthday, 90 year old Vicki Edney decided to accomplish her dream of strolling the Edgewalk on the CN Tower in Toronto. A role model for us all, Vicki said that her dream originated from her desire to prove that she could do anything her husband could do - and more. You go, girl!

3. Neal "The Dude" Unger

Known affectionately as "The Dude", 62 year old Neal Unger has been an inspiration to skateboarders everywhere. Modest about his abilities, when he was 57, Neal said that he could only do "10-20% of the basic skateboarding tricks", but if you watch his skating videos, you can tell he's always had more skills than that - and has always been a pretty cool dude.
