Meet Fred and Phyllis Marodin

phyllis fred1Fred and Phyllis Madorin, two Active Older Adults, can often be found at the Harrisburg YMCA. After moving to Harrisburg almost two years ago, they have found the Cannon Y to be a place where many people from the community gather, form friendships and work together to achieve their health goals.

Most recently from St. Louis, the Madorins have lived in Indiana, eastern and western Pennsylvania and traveled the world.

This culture, Phyllis and Fred explain, is mirrored in everything the Y does.
