Cheerleaders rule – especially when they shave their heads in support of leukemia research. On Sunday afternoon Blue (the Indianapolis Colts mascot) shaved two Indy cheerleaders heads during the team’s 20-13 win over the visiting Buffalo Bills.
Megan and Courtney Ann are the latest Indy supporters to shave their heads since Colt’s head coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with Leukemia earlier this season. The hair shaving trend all started after many of the players went hairless to support their coach who had lost his hair after undergoing treatment. This weekend Blue tweeted at the team’s cheerleaders and asked if they were willing to do the same if he could raise $10,000 for leukemia research.
Coach Pagano was in attendance at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday to witness this touching act of solidarity by his team’s cheerleaders. The continued support of players, fans and members of the Colts organization on and off the field have made #chuckstrong a meaninful campaign nationally.
