BLUE TO SHAVE CHEERLEADER'S HEAD IF $10,000 RAISED FOR LEUKEMIA RESEARCH

Posted Nov 12, 2012

Colts cheerleader accepts Blue's challenge to shave her head as a fundraiser for leukemia research.

INDIANAPOLIS – What started with approximately twenty-five Colts players has quickly spread – individuals shaving their heads to show their support for Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano, who is currently battling leukemia. Today, the Colts announced two more members of the team want to support the movement – Blue, their mascot, and an Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader.

 

Over the weekend, Blue issued a challenge to the Colts Cheerleaders via Twitter – if he could raise $10,000 for leukemia research by November 25, one cheerleader would agree to have her head shaved in honor of Coach Pagano. That challenge was accepted by Megan M., a member of the Colts Cheerleaders, on Sunday. The video of her accepting Blue’s Challenge can be viewed at www.colts.com or by clicking here.

 

Beginning today, Blue is asking fans to visit www.colts.com/chuckstrong to make a donation to the CHUCKSTRONG fund. If he reaches $10,000 by Sunday, November 25, Megan M. will allow Blue to shave her head at the Colts vs. Bills game. All money raised through this challenge will benefit leukemia research at the IU Health Simon Cancer Center in honor of Coach Pagano.

 

In addition, if Colts fans would like to shave their heads in honor of Coach Pagano, they can do so free of charge by visiting select Great Clips locations (see list below) through Friday, November 23. For each fan who shaves their head, Great Clips will donate $10 to support Blue’s CHUCKSTRONG Challenge for leukemia research. Individuals who shave their heads can tweet photos using #CHUCKSTRONG. All tweets will appear on www.colts.com/chuckstrong.

 

Tomorrow, November 13, Colts Punter Pat McAfee will help kick off the campaign by visiting the Great Clips in Raceway Commons (55 S. Raceway Rd.,  Indianapolis, Ind.) from 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. to have his recently shaved head “touched up” and to encourage fans to go bald in honor of Coach Pagano’s fight against leukemia.
