Skydiving is not for the faint of heart. It involves a lot of bravery, skill, trust, and most importantly a very huge risk factor.

While it is mostly attempted by people in their 20, 30s or 40s, Irene is 102 years old and she is now officially the oldest female skydiver in the world to sky-dive.

Each year since turning 100 years old, Irene has been skydiving to raise money for MND in honour of her daughter who died of the deadely disease a few years ago. She is an incredible woman who has had so much tragedy in her life. If your looking for inspiration and encouragement, you should watch Irene's story and hopefully it will give you strength.
