What started with approximately 30 Colts players has quickly spread – individuals shaving their heads to show their support for Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano, who is currently battling leukemia. The Colts have two more members of the team want to support the movement – Blue, their mascot, and an Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader.
Over the weekend, Blue issued a challenge to the Colts Cheerleaders via Twitter – if he could raise $10,000 for leukemia research by November 25, one cheerleader would agree to have her head shaved in honor of Coach Pagano. That challenge was accepted by Megan M., a member of the Colts Cheerleaders, on Sunday. The video of her accepting Blue’s Challenge can be viewed at www.colts.com or by clicking here.
Blue is asking fans to visit www.colts.com/chuckstrong to make a donation to the CHUCKSTRONG fund. If he reaches $10,000 by Sunday, November 25, Megan M. will allow Blue to shave her head at the Colts vs. Bills game. All money raised through this challenge will benefit leukemia research at the IU Health Simon Cancer Center in honor of Coach Pagano.
Colts Punter Pat McAfee helped kick off the campaign this week by having his recently shaved head “touched up” and to encourage fans to go bald in honor of Coach Pagano’s fight against leukemia.
