This story is about Australian grandparents Paul and Lyn Conlon, ages 69 and 70, who recently crossed a new item off their bucket list – skydiving.
The Get Old effort will help Pfizer achieve Imperative 3: Earn Greater Respect From Society. The goal is to inspire and activate people of all ages to reconsider what it means to get old and to change perceptions about aging at every stage of life.
Having tried parasailing 25 years earlier, the couple was ready to take on a new challenge, and their family, including two children, six grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren, came together to make it happen.
“They helped us follow through to help tick off something on our bucket list,” Lyn said. “It was unbelievable. The whole family was there and it was a very nice day.”
