DELAND, FL (CENTRAL FLORIDA NEWS 13/CNN) -

A 98-year-old man spent his Saturday jumping out of a plane.

Don Sugg was skydiving for charity.

The fundraising event was for a shelter that helps homeless charities.

Saturday's jump wasn't his first; Sugg started when he was 80.

"I've gone from one to three times a year since then, for different occasions - it doesn't make any difference what occasion - for some charity," Sugg said.

That fits into Sugg's motto for long life, which is simply "think positive."

He said doing something for others is a way to keep him from getting old.
