Colts cheerleaders shave heads during game to support coach Chuck Pagano
Two Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders agreed to have their heads shaved during Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills to pay off a fund raising agreement made with the team’s mascot, Blue.
Colts cheerleader Megan agreed two weeks ago to shave her head during the game if $10,000 were raised for leukemia research. The challenge was part of the ongoing “ChuckStrong” movement the Colts have initiated in support of coach Chuck Pagano, who was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this season. Megan and Blue teamed up to raise $22,670, which meant she had to live up to her end of the agreement on Sunday.
Cheerleader Crystal Anne joined Megan in having her head shaved. The two were seated on the field and had clippers taken to their heads to shave off their locks late in the game.
Here’s what they looked like after having their heads shaved:

How did Megan feel about having her head shaved? She seemed pretty excited about it:
It’s about to go down Colts fans! Thank you for all of your support and may God bless all those affected by Cancer. @bluecoltsmascot VERY
