Japanese mountain climber Yuichiro Miura reached the summit of Mount Everest at age 70. George Brunstad was also 70 when he swam the English Channel. Naval officer Grace Hopper became the first female rear admiral of the United States Navy when she was 79. Margaret Haggerty completed her quest to run a marathon on each of the seven continents when she was 84. If stories like these teach us anything, it’s that senior adults are capable of amazing things.
At University Village, we are proud of all our senior adults are doing and will do to make this world a better place!
