Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders went to the extreme Saturday to help kids at Riley Hospital.

Sixteen cheerleaders took to the skies and jumped from a plane at 13,000 feet. Each cheerleader jumped with a teddy bear from Canopies for Kids. Those bears are then declared the "Bravest Bear in the World" and given to "The Bravest Kid in the World," a Riley patient.

"Coming into this, I can honestly say that I never had the desire to skydive; never dreamt of doing this. But we were doing it as a team, as a family-and for the kids. They inspired us all," said Breanna Fonner.

Proceeds also went to the hospital, and Skydive Indianapolis at the Frankfort Municipal Airport donated $30 for every tandem jump performed Saturday.
