INDIANAPOLIS – This week the Indianapolis Colts and the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center launched a CHUCKSTRONG online auction to benefit cancer research.

To view all of the items, visit www.colts.com/chuckstrong. The proceeds from the auction will support research at the IU Simon Cancer Center. This is the first year a CHUCKSTRONG online auction has been held.
The CHUCKSTRONG campaign was launched in 2012 when Coach Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia just three games into his first season in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis community rallied around Pagano, who was treated at the IU Health Simon Cancer Center. Pagano has since made a full recovery and has championed cancer research aimed at helping others beat their cancer.
Since its inception, CHUCKSTRONG has raised nearly $2 million to support the 200 cancer researchers at Indiana University looking for ways to prevent, detect and treat cancer.
