Colts Cheerleaders Shave Their Heads


Colts cheerleader Megan M. is a woman of her word. She's also a woman without any hair. The Indy cheerleader had her head shaved by Blue, the Colts' mascot, during the team's 20-13 win over the visiting Buffalo Bills.

Megan is just the latest member of the Colts' organization to go bald to show support for coach Chuck Pagano, who has been away from the team battling leukemia during much of the season. Shortly after the players went hairless (or orange) to show support for their coach, who lost his hair while undergoing treatment, 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.

Megan accepted the challenge and #OperationShaveMegansHead was started.

With Megan's help, Blue raised $22,670, according to WTHITV, more than doubling the threshold for the trim. When it came time to hold up her end of the bargain, Megan had company. Fellow cheerleader Crystal Ann had decided to join her. Blue was ready to do the cutting.

Money can still be donated to the ChuckStrong at

Coach Pagano is having his treatments at the same place we go. They have a sign in the main entrance of IUH showing how much money has been raised for research under his name. Several of the Colts players have visited the infusion center and handed out t-shirts and things. Only the sickest patients get treatments in a room, most everyone else sits in a recliner around the fireplace and reads, watches tv or talks. When the Colts are there everyone chats and visits with them. They are a caring group of young men. It's also the same place Lance Armstrong took treatments. It is amazing how much money for research those 2 have brought in.
I am sure Coach Pagano feels blessed to have so much support from the players, cheerleaders and fans. Many people will benefit from the research they are making possible.
