The Colts beating the Bills 20-13 on Sunday was sweet. Chuck Pagano being present at the game, and getting a standing ovation from the home crowd at Lucas Oil Stadium, was sweeter. However, the icing on the cake was a gesture made by two Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders on the sideline during the game.
While the Bills and Colts battled it out on the field, cheerleaders Megan M and Crystal Ann had their heads shaved on the sideline in an effort to support cancer awareness and research. It was a beautiful moment, and all for a worthy, noble cause.
Cheerleaders exist on a football field to promote glamor, beauty, and fun. Their looks are everything, and many of us associate beauty with long, flowing hair. For two of them to shave that hair off was spectacular on their parts.
The campaign to shave Megan and Crystal Ann's heads was part of #OperationShaveMegansHead, all set-up by the Colts and their mascot, Blue. Megan was the only cheerleader slated to get buzz cut on Sunday, but Crystal Ann decided to join her in solidarity.
The campaign reportedly raised $ $22,670 over the past two weeks. The goal was to earn $10,000 for leukemia by November 25th. Mission accomplished. Bravo Megan and Crystal Ann.
