(CNN) – A Michigan man marked his 70th birthday by jumping out of a plane. Not just once. Larry Ekstrom made 70 jumps to celebrate his big day. He’s been skydiving for 46 years.

Ten years ago he rang in his 60th by skydiving…you guessed it…60 times. Ekstrom says he plans to continue pushing the age boundary as long as possible.

Ekstrom wasn’t just jumping for himself, he also did it for a good cause. He raised money for a charity called Leader Dogs for the Blind.
