Dozens of Colts players, including Adam Vinatieri and Andrew Luck, shaved their heads earlier this month in honor of coach Chuck Pagano and his struggle with leukemia. Two cheerleaders followed in the team’s heartwarming footsteps during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Bills after fans donated $22,000 to cancer research, shaving their locks and smiling about it afterward.
“I’ve had mentors and family members and volunteer at Riley and met little girls who have lost their hair and beat cancer multiple times.”
“Just seeing struggles they went through and how they could overcome that and still have confidence and fight this fight without their hair – they are really my inspiration for doing this.”
Okay fine. Cheerleading is a sport.
