As fans enter the stadium on Sunday they will be greeted by members of the Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) sorority who will distribute "Think Pink" ribbons. The ribbons signify a sign of support to all those affected by Breast Cancer and to raise awareness for annual screenings. ZTA is the National Survivor Ambassador of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and through a partnership with the NFL will participate in awareness campaigns in every NFL market.

Also, members of the Chiefs Women's Organization (CWO) will greet fans at stadium entrances with "I Cheer For…" selfie cards which can be used to write the name of someone who has been affected by cancer. Fans are encouraged to participate by posting a selfie with it using the hashtag #ChiefsVsCancer on their social media accounts. These images will be shared in-stadium as well as online at To download your own selfie card in advance please click here. Fans are also encouraged to bring their own signs in support of loved ones affected by the disease. Signs must be no larger than 3'x5'.
