The K-Jo 105.5 Pound Plunge presented by Mosaic Life Care ends its run on a high note.

The Pound Plunge, a weight loss program overseen by health professionals, has wrapped up after a 15-year run with 1,200 participants losing a total of 7,967 pounds. Thirty-six percent of the participants who started on January 8th completed the program which ended last night with a celebration at East Hills Mall. That is a record retention rate.

Over its 15-year run, participants in the Pound Plunge lost a total of 165,000 pounds.
