About the Plunge

The K-JO 105.5 Pound Plunge presented by Mosaic Life Care is a FREE 12-week weight loss program. Participants weigh in once a week and those who have the highest percentage of weight loss after 12 weeks win some great prizes and get healthier! At this event, more than 2,000 people participate each year and are provided with healthy tips and encouragement throughout the program by local health professionals.

The Community Health Needs Assessment we completed identified adult and childhood obesity as one of the health needs in our community. This is just one reason why the Pound Plunge, in its 13th year, is so important to the vitality of our community. This year, participants will surpass 136,000 pounds lost since the program began in 2006!

Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight affects almost every aspect of an individual's life, including blood pressure, medication reduction, joint health, mobility, balance and overall quality of life. Not to mention the intangible aspects such as more confidence, more energy and the enjoyment of living a healthy lifestyle.
