Among the U.S. competitors will be League City’s own Michael Cummings, ranked 17th on the world stage, and his sons, Colin and Connor, ranked number 1 and number 3, respectively. The elder Cummings is the healthcare administrator at The Crossings.

Couple living at The Crossings are celebrated for an extraordinary life lived. The Overton’s impact has been so great that a surprise was recently held at The Crossing in their honor, gathering many of the people they had touched over the years.
Leading Others to Recovery

Once the pair had retired, they began to delve into volunteer work at their church joining a life altering mission trip to Nicaragua. John recalled with tears welling in his eyes, “The last day, we went to an addiction center, and we gave our testimonies and 19 men bowed on the concrete floor and accepted Christ as their Savior.

If the folks at Disney ever did decide to make a movie about Yolanda Fagan, it would have to be called The Boxing Granny and it would begin in a far-off land called New Jersey.

She was, at one time, the only female boxer at her gym, meaning she spent plenty of time sparring with men. It paid off.

It is staff like Zienty who literally and figuratively “go the distance” for elders that transform MRC’s mission from words on paper into life-enhancing action.
Going the Distance

“What can I say? She belongs here and I felt it from the moment I met her. She imprinted on my heart. Our friendship was instant and now she lives just down the hall from my office. I couldn’t be happier,” said Zienty with her signature grin.
