Orlando Senior Soaring to New Heights for 80th Birthday

Dr. Dick Tucker will celebrate his 80th birthday by soaring through the skies of Orlando. On Wednesday, August 28, at 8:00 a.m., Dr. Tucker will take a tandem hang gliding flight from Wallaby Ranch.

This is the second bucket list item to be checked off by the Director for University of Central Florida Initiative on Aging and soon-to-be resident of Legacy Pointe at UCF, a new senior living community in development near the UCF campus. Ten years ago, he celebrated his 70th birthday by tandem sky jumping.

He says events like this prove to everyone that you can do anything, despite your age.
