A lot of athletes get made fun of for having long hair. Just ask Tom Brady. It’s something we simply enjoy ripping on people for and can make them an easy target at times — especially when they get dragged down by it. That makes it easy to forget that some of them are doing it for a great cause, like Colts punter Pat McAfee. According to the Indianapolis Star, McAfee recently chopped off the long locks that he had been growing since 2009 and donated them to aid cancer patients.
“Woooo…donated the hair baby,” McAfee wrote on his Twitter account Tuesday.
He donated approximately 12 inches of his hair to Locks of Love, which is a nonprofit organization that makes hairpieces for children who are undergoing cancer treatment and can’t afford them.
