SUCCESS ON Mt. EVEREST !!!
On May 22nd, 2007 at 8.08 am Nepalese-time (10.23 pm Toronto-time, May 21st) Werner Berger realized his dream and stood on top of the world, the summit of Mount Everest (8,851 meters / 29,035 feet). This pinnacle was attained after a climb that began at 9.30 pm the night before, and on the 50th day after flying into the Solo Khumbu (Everest) region.

Werner is the oldest North American to have stood atop the summit of Mt. Everest, and the fourth oldest person in the world to have accomplished this feat. Werner is also the oldest North American to have completed the 'Seven Summits'….the highest point on the seven continents His secret, enjoy a balanced life - and especially your occupation - exercise and augment your diet with quality supplements to make up for our nutritionally depleted foods (for more information click here).
Werner Berger returned to North America on June 3, 2007 and was interviewed by Matt Lauer on The Today Show on Monday, June 4th. Click here to see the interview. During the exchange Werner asked Matt if he would like to climb Mount Kilimanjaro with him next year and Matt said “That’s a challenge I may take you up on.” Given the magnitude of the initiative Werner and his team have developed, Matt and other high profile media will want to be there….yes, a bold statement, for a bold undertaking.

“You have climbed Kilimanjaro twice. Why would you want to return?” The plan has been 12 months in the hatching. Werner and Heshie have assembled a team to launch a sustainable global peace initiative. The first major event will be, “Climb Kilimanjaro for Global Peace”, hosted on 01/01/10 (for more information click here).
