It will be a big year for the Kansas City Chiefs as they celebrate their 50th anniversary. They have plenty of initiatives planned for the year.

The Kansas City Chiefs will be celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and the team has plenty of festivities lined up to mark the occasion.

Ted Crews at the official Chiefs website posted a complete rundown of the plans and initiatives that team chariman and CEO Clark Hunt announced on Tuesday.

Among the things for fans to look forward to in 2012:

- Beginning in June, the Chiefs will travel to a number of cities in the surrounding area to say "thank you" to fans, sign autographs and take pictures. The Chiefs Super Bowl IV Vince Lombardi Trophy will also be a part of the Chiefs Fan Tour.

- On June 15, members of the Chiefs organization will return to Joplin for a day of service. The team will also provide resources, time and finances to build a 3,500 square foot Chiefs-themed playground at Emerson Elementary School in Joplin. Details of the Chiefs Day of Service in Joplin will be announced in a separate press advisory.

- The Chiefs will provide 50 under-served elementary schools a Chiefs Play 60 Kit for children. The kit is used to make a fitness circuit with multiple stations, encouraging kids to get their 60 minutes of activity per day. Schools can apply at the beginning of the 2012 school year on kcchiefs.com.

- The Chiefs 50-year celebration is about Greater Kansas City and the people that make up this outstanding community. With that in mind, the Chiefs will pay tribute to 50 Kansas Citians who have shaped the Kansas City area.

For a complete and extensive look at all of the plans and initiatives for the 50th anniversary, head on over to the Chiefs website.
