INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Chuckstrong movement stays strong after a successful fundraiser.

The Colts say they raised $632,000 during the second-annual Chuckstrong Tailgate Gala Friday night.

Coach Chuck Pagano said the mission of the event is to raise money for cancer research at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center.

It was hosted by the Colts and Coach Pagano.

Twenty-five-thousand dollars of that total came from QB Andrew Luck throwing touchdown passes to 25 different donors. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
