  • 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:

    Hi, new to YES Theory fam! My grandmother is actually turning 88 years old this year and she would love to go to Vegas one last time-- legit to gamble, drink (black label) and have a good time.

    I'm a sitski teacher and I do this all the time for people with a disability and it is so nice to see you guys do it. Myrandmother and father are not able with their health to do something like that anymore and they where adventures, but I have a good friend of mine who is around 60 years old and has multiple sclerosis (MS) and she really wants to go to the northern part of Finland and do a snowmobile and husky safari and hopefully see the northern lights. Me and my girlfriend want to take her there, ...

    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 :)

    I cried from the first second this video started to even now as I write this. This was a hard video for me to watch. I lost my only two surviving grandparents within 14 months of each other. My grandfather passed away after a painful 7 month battle with pancreatic cancer in May of 2017. The summer before he passed, he was the healthiest man I knew and was out sailing on the lake and living his life to the fullest. In early July of this year, my grandmother passed away due to kidney failure, but a broke...
