Colts Carol for a Cause

Colts Deliver Gifts and Holiday Cheer to Patients at Riley Hospital for Children





INDIANAPOLIS —Indianapolis Colts players T Anthony Castonzo, T Ulrick John, QB Andrew Luck, G Jack Mewhort, LS Matt Overton, G Joe Reitz, and Colts Cheerleaders delivered toys and sang Christmas carols with patients at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. The visit concluded the 2014 "Colts Community Tuesday" program for the regular season.

During their visit, the team decked the halls singing Christmas carols with patients and their families including "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and "Jingle Bells." After each patient received a gift, they were eager to suggest their favorite carols to sing along with the team. 

Caroling has become an annual tradition for the Colts, started by Owner and CEO Jim Irsay, and one that brings some added sunshine to patients and their families around the holiday season. It is part of a long-standing partnership the Colts have had with Riley at IU Health for more than a decade.

Over the years, the Colts organization and its players have supported the hospital through various programs, events and financial contributions, including a $1 million donation from Irsay in 2008. The team has embraced the annual "Miracle Ride" event and has made countless visits to patients at the hospital in addition to hosting special training camp visits for Riley families. The organization also created the Riley Coin Toss Kids program to give Riley patients the opportunity to participate in the coin toss at each Colts home game.
