    Colts raise more than $650,000 for cancer research

    Inspired by coach Chuck Pagano’s in-season battle with leukemia, the Colts have become committed to raising money for cancer research.

    On Friday, the effort to date topped $1.1 million, via more than $650,000 raised at the inaugural “Chuckstrong Tailgate Gala.”

    The event, held at the team’s practice facility, included quarterback Andrew Luck throwing passes to anyone who contributed $1,000. Luck threw 24 passes, presumably completing each of them.

    “We’ve had a great partnership with [the IU Simon Cancer Center],” Colts co-owner Kalen Irsay told Cathy Kightlinger of the Indianapolis Star. “But [the center] also obviously holds a very special place in our heart because they saved [Pagano's] life. He got the best treatment there. I don’t think we could have asked for anything more. And his family can attest to it the same way.”

    A silent auction included a trip for 10 to a 2013 Colts road game in the Irsay jet, valued at an estimated $75,000.

    Caldwell was really nice to tank for Luck. Even though it got him fired and he never got to coach him. Way to take one for the team! Same for Jeff Saturday and all those guys who got cut!
