Marvin Y Story

"I'll be 83 in August. I spent 27 years in the Air Force and 25 years in real estate. At whatever stage I'm in, I hope to stay active. A few weeks ago I broke my record of 103,750 steps in a week on the Nu-Step machine, walking, and water walking. My life goal is to make someone's life better every day because of their interaction with me.

A couple of years ago I was in a funk. One of the staff members at the O'Fallon IL Y noticed and invited me over for Thanksgiving and Christmas. She had invited a lot of veterans. She recognized the need and went above and beyond, helping me out in a rough time. I'm thankful for the community the Y provides me."
