100-Year-Old WWII Nurse Celebrates Birthday by Skydiving
Raymonde Sullivan has done a great deal in her lifetime. While a lot of living can be packed into 100 years on earth, the former World War Two nurse still had one thing left on her bucket list.
Two years ago, Sullivan learned that her close friend and neighbor Karen Plante had gone skydiving for the first time and asked her to take her for a jump for her 100th birthday. With the help of her friend and the company Skydive Sebastian, Raymonde checked another experience off her list.
“I had never done it, and I’ve done a lot of things in 100 years so I thought I must do it while I can,” Sullivan said of her skydiving adventure. So, what did she think of the jump? Raymonde reports that she’s glad she did it but doesn’t plan for another freefall. Check out the video below.
