Colts cheerleader ready to shave head if mascot Blue raises $10K for leukemia research

30 Colts players, staff already bald for Pagano

INDIANAPOLIS - A Colts cheerleader is offering to shave her head for leukemia research. "Meagan M." said she's accepting a challenge from Colts mascot "Blue," WIBC reported.

"Blue challenged any of us cheerleaders," Megan said. "If he would raise $10,000 for cancer research, he asked if any of us would shave our head at the next game."

She said yes.

"Because of myself having friends who've been affected by cancer," she said. "And family members and my volunteer work, it was just something I absolutely wanted to do."

If Blue gets fans to donate the money at www.colts.com/chuckstrong, her long brown locks will be shorn at halftime of the next home game, Nov. 25 against the Buffalo Bills. 

Meagan joins about 30 Colts players who have gone bald in support of the Head Coach Chuck Pagano. The coach has just begun a second round of chemotherapy in the hope of keeping his leukemia in remission.
