One grandma isn't letting old age stop her from being a daredevil.

Maire Hollo, 88, just added skydiving to her list of completed adventures last week.

The Canadian woman, who describes herself as a "crazy granny,” said the jump, which took place at the Parachute School of Toronto, was definitely worth it.

“It was wonderful, just so peaceful and beautiful up there,” Hollo told InsideEdition.com. “I had it in my mind (to do it) a long time ago.”

Hollo said she couldn’t wait for the big moment.

“My mother’s fearless and she was just so thrilled to be able to do something that challenged her and I was really happy for her to have the experience,” Hollo’s daughter, Susan, said.

Susan Hollo said her mother has always encouraged her to chase her dreams.

“She’s taught me that if you really want to do something, you need to go out and realize your dreams, and if you’ve got a bucket list, you should really start checking those things off because you never know,” Susan Hollo said.

Skydiving is just one of the 88-year-old’s daring feats. At 84, she hung off the side of the tallest building in Toronto.

In the future, Hollo wants to drive a race car. For her 90th birthday, the grandma hopes to have famed rapper Pitbull sing to her, although the family isn’t sure how that one will happen.

”You’re never too old to do the things you want to do,” Susan Hollo added.
