Dorothy Hoffner, a remarkable 104-year-old resident of Chicago, has become an inspiration by defying expectations and setting her sights on becoming the world’s oldest skydiver. Recently, she took part in a tandem skydive at Skydive Chicago in Ottawa, Illinois, boldly leaving her walker on the ground.
Hoffner’s adventurous spirit knows no bounds. She had previously experienced skydiving at the impressive age of 100, and her determination hasn’t wavered. With unwavering courage, she climbed the plane’s steps and fearlessly leaped from a height of 13,500 feet. Her incredible achievement has caught the attention of Skydive Chicago, who are diligently working to secure Guinness World Records certification for her accomplishment, potentially making history in the process.
Despite her age, Dorothy Hoffner isn’t slowing down. She has more exciting adventures on her horizon, including a hot air balloon ride, as she approaches her 105th birthday in December. Her zest for life serves as a testament to the boundless possibilities of the human spirit, proving that age is no obstacle to pursuing one’s dreams.
