INDIANAPOLIS - In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Colts players WR Duron Carter, DT T.Y. McGill and LS Matt Overton as well as Colts Cheerleaders and Blue visited the Indiana University Health Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center on Tuesday, October 13, 2015. This was the sixth Community Tuesday of the 2015 season, which is an initiative geared towards leaving a positive impact in the Indianapolis community.

Colts players visited with over 50 patients currently battling cancer to share words of encouragement and spread joy. Their hope was to free the patients from cancer-related worries and enable them to focus on the excitement of the visit. The players took a moment to learn about each patient's unique story, share words of inspiration and give thanks. Players took pictures and signed autographs, and each patient also received a Colts care package.

The IU Health Simon Cancer Center visit was one of several Colts events related to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. At the beginning of October, the team kicked off the month-long celebration with the "Pinking of the Canal" event and dedicated the October 4 home game to the NFL's "A Crucial Catch" initiative. Players also visited ten women who have been impacted by the disease during the annual "Pamper Her Pink" event.
