Colts Cheerleaders Shave Their Heads in Support of Head Coach Pagano
While watching the Bills football game yesterday we saw cheerleaders getting their heads shaved. Afterwards I commented that they still look beautiful and just as I made the comment, the announcer said the same thing. I'll tell ya, Indianapolis Colts cheerleader Megan M. is a woman of her word. She's also a woman without any hair. Why?
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. Blue, the team's mascot, tweeted at the team's cheerleaders and asked if they were willing to do the same. He would do the shaving which could raise $10,000 or more for leukemia research. So, two Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders got their heads shaved yesterday (November 25th) between the third and fourth quarters of the Colts' game against the Buffalo Bills. Earlier this month, over two dozen Colts players shaved their heads to show their support for their coach, and now Megan M. and Crystal B. have followed suit. Megan and Crystal raised over $22,000 by the deadline. Speaking to local station News 8, Megan explained,
"I've just had personal experiences with people who have had cancer. I've had mentors and family members and volunteer at Riley [Hospital for Children] and met little girls who have lost their hair and beat cancer multiple times. Just seeing struggles they went through and how they could overcome that and still have confidence and fight this fight without their hair -- they are really my inspiration for doing this."
