Colts Bald Cheerleaders: Heads Shaved to Support Coach Chuck Pagano

by at . Comments

Two Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders shaved their heads and went bald in solidarity with the team's head coach Chuck Pagano, who has been battling leukemia.

Colts cheerleader Megan M. had her head shaved by Blue, the Colts' mascot, during the team's 20-13 win over the visiting Buffalo Bills this weekend.

Shortly after the players went bald to show support for their coach, who lost his hair while undergoing treatment, Blue tweeted at the team's cheerleaders.

His challenge: Step up and go bald he could raise $10,000 for leukemia research. Megan accepted Blue's challenge and #OperationShaveMegansHead began.

With Megan's help, big Blue raised $22,670, according to WTHITV. If nothing else, Chuck Pagano's struggle has led to some inspiring moments.

When it came time to hold up Megan's end of the bargain, she had company. Fellow cheerleader Crystal Ann had decided to join her. Blue did the honors.

Pretty awesome.
