Four F-16s are scheduled to perform a flyover at the conclusion of the national anthem, weather permitting.
The Chiefs, along with the NFL and its member clubs, the NFL Players Association and the American Cancer Society are committed to the fight against cancer. Beginning this year, the Crucial Catch platform is expanding beyond the NFL's work around breast cancer to address multiple types of cancer through early detection and risk reduction. The Chiefs have chosen to raise awareness for multiple cancers during Sunday's game and will have players, coaches and officials in apparel supporting multiple types of cancer, as well as additional on-field and in-stadium branding to help raise awareness for the campaign.
At halftime, the Chiefs will recognize seven cancer survivors from The University of Kansas Health System. During training camp, this group was invited to The University of Kansas Health System Training Complex to view a practice. While having lunch, the group was visited by Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach and President Mark Donovan, who invited the group back to Arrowhead Stadium for this Sunday's game to be recognized and celebrated.
Also during halftime, all fans are encouraged to fill out the "I CHEER FOR" card that will be taped to their seat to recognize someone close to them who has been affected by cancer. Fans are invited to take selfies with the card and share using #ChiefsVsCancer, and when prompted at halftime, hold up the card to share in an in-stadium moment with all fans inside Arrowhead. Photos that are shared with #ChiefsVsCancer will be featured on the video boards at Arrowhead and on www.chiefs.com/chiefsvscancer.
