Two Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders agreed to have their heads shaved to benefit leukemia research during the Colts’ win, 20-13, over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.  The fight to cure leukemia has been a major focus for the team since the head coach, Chuck Pagano, was diagnosed with the disease in September.

Crystal B. and Megan M. followed in the footsteps of over two dozen Colts players, who have already shaved their heads in a show of support for the coach. Pagano is undergoing chemotherapy to battle his condition that is in remission.

The cheerleaders got in the game when Blue, the team’s overstuffed blue horse of a mascot, issued a challenge that she’d get her head shaved if one Colts cheerleader could raise $10,000 for leukemia research by November 25th. The cheerleaders raised over $22,000 on time, and sat down for the buzz cuts.
