As most know, Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano was recently diagnosed with a treatable form of leukemia, causing him to take a leave from the team. While coaches and players have already lent their support to Pagano, the Colts’ official site is now giving fans the same opportunity with CHUCKSTRONG. The new campaign, inspired by cyclist Lance Armstrong and the wildly successful LIVESTRONG movement, offers merchandise such as T-shirts and wristbands, with proceeds going toward leukemia research. Those interested can also purchase posters, “wishes,” and participate in a blood drive. Again, please visit Colts.com to learn more, and consider donating to an excellent cause.
