Colts cheerleaders shave heads, support Chuck Pagano

Earlier this month, Colts players shaved their heads in support of Chuck Pagano's battle with leukemia. On Sunday, a pair of cheerleaders did the same.

The bold move from Megan M. and Crystal B. came in response to Colts mascot Blue, who challenged any cheerleader to shave her head if they could raise $10,000 for leukemia research. The pair combined to raise $22,000, and in turn lost their locks during the Colts' game against the Bills.

It's only the latest effort from the Colts organization in their "ChuckStrong" movement, which as a whole has $250,000 so far.

Pagano, whose leukemia is in remission according to recent reports, was actually in attendance to see his team beat Buffalo, 20-13, and received a standing ovation. He'll undergo another round of chemotherapy this week. There's a chance that he could return to the sideline if the 7-4 Colts make the playoffs and last long enough.
