“We need to get new shirts now,” said Scheller.

This year's Polar Plunge is also extra special because Saturday was Pat's birthday.

Scheller and Torgerud said the polar plunge tradition just started out with a group of friends, but throughout the years, family members have now joined them as well.

A new record was set by TRANE company employees for the largest group ever to take the plunge.

A hundred employees took the challenge.

The goal was to raise $10,000, but they blew past it raising more than $16,000.

One of the employees, Virginia Cress said she'd shave her head if they met the goal and she stayed true to her promise.

She said it's a bit chilly without her hair, but it was well worth it.

“It's cold, but it checked two things off my bucket list,” said Cress. “I wanted to shave my head for charity and donate my hair for Locks of Love, so I killed two birds with one stone and it came for a great cause."

TRANE employees have been plunging for about seven years now, but this is by far their largest group.
