Everett Middle School, San Francisco, California, 2003

“I can see my school from where I live in the St. Mary’s Housing Project in the Bronx. I walk the six blocks four days a week. There’s no elevator at the school, and it’s 54 steps to the front door of the Experience Corps office. Plus, I go up and down stairs all day - the building has five floors. I’m 81. My doctor told me it’s good for me. I just wear comfortable shoes!” Arnita Murray, New York City
