  • Ellie is an 88 year old superwoman. She started skiing when she was 33 years old and at the age of 82 had to give it up because of too many injuries. Ever since, her dream has been to get back on the slopes one last time. Luckily, our friends at Wish of a Lifetime heard Ellie's story and decided they'd help her achieve that goal. We were so lucky to have taken part in this adventure and want to thank our friends at Wish of a Lifetime a million times for inviting us along on this journey.

    Please please please go check out the incredible work they do to help elders live out their last wishes and get out of isolation:

    If you wanna become involved with Wish of a Lifetime right now, here's what you can do LITERALLY tomorrow:

    my grandma is 73 years old and she has spent her whole life caring for other people. She became a nurse to serve in the air force during the Vietnam war and then came home to work full time as a nurse while raising 3 kids. she has been like a mother to me since the day I was born and I wouldn’t be here without her. her favorite thing to do is to go on cruises. she hasn’t been able to go because all of her money goes towards everyone else. she has to pay for my grandpa to be in a nursing home and she su...

    My grandfather who is in his 80’s used to love to go sailing but his eyes went bad and now all he does is sleep and home. Everyday he asks to go sailing but he isn’t able to. If you guys are able to help him go sailing or be on a boat again, it would make his lifetime.

    About 3 years ago I went skydiving in Boston with my sister & cousin, and my grandma said to let her know when I’m going to do it again because she wants to skydive as well. She’s turning 93 in May and with old age she’s become more anxious about many things so I’m not sure if she’s still up for it. If the opportunity came up, I would ask her if she’ll be up & able to do it. Love you guys!! This video is very touching and inspiring !

    This must've been the greatest video Yes theory has ever made!! Ellie has such a beautiful soul and she exudes positivity despite having a legitimate reason for not being able to get back to the slopes at 88. I wish you well, Grandma Ellie. Yes Theory, thank you for always giving us high quality and inspiring content on each video :)
