Conquer the Climb!

  • Each challenge runs from the 1st of each month to the last day of that month.

About This Initiative

The Zenith Climb was born when Keith Kline, Lead Nursing Informaticist was discussing Wellness Ideas with Kelly Gilrain, Psychologist and Director of Behavioral Medicine. Reviewing ways to inspire and initiative physical well-being is a passion of Keith’s and together they developed the idea as one way to promote physical health during the workday! There were many involved in the launching of this initiative with the support of Senior Leadership, Terry Ricca, Bob Hockel, Tom Rubino, Beth Green and Eric Kupersmith. The support and coordination of Erin Connearney, the planning and design with Facilities – Jenn O’Shea and Scott Payne; the IT and ideas from Phil Fizur for not only this initiative but the development and maintenance of the Cooper Wellness Website and the entire Cooper Health and Wellness Committee for their input! Enjoy weaving wellness into your day!
