COLLEGE STATION, Texas, April 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Chuck Norris is coming to town! The first ever CForce Chuck Norris 5K is on May 4th and aims to set the world record for most people dressed as Mr. Norris himself. The event, which sold out all 5,000 spots in only thirteen days, is the first of its kind and welcomes people of all ages to participate in this family fun day. Registration included a fake Chuck beard, a cast iron 5K belt buckle and a running shirt printed as if you are Norris from his iconic Invasion USA movie poster. A VIP breakfast where you can meet Chuck will be held for those who signed up quick enough, followed by the 5K, eating some of Chuck's favorite foods, attempting the world record, and being greeted at the finish line by the man himself. Participants from 48 countries and 7 countries signed up to be part of the historic event.

All proceeds for the event go purely to two children's charities. One being Gena and Chuck Norris' KickstartKids ? which, in lieu of P.E., allows underprivileged youth to take karate instead, learning valuable lessons like discipline, respect and self-confidence. KickstartKids currently enrolls nearly 10,000 students throughout Texas and has graduated more than 98,000 students since its inception. The other charity benefactor is locally-based Mercy Project ? an award winning international charity which aims to end child slavery in Ghana, Africa by way of economic empowerment.

The 5K is brought to you by Chuck's very own CForce Bottling Company ? a new brand of bottled water that comes directly from an aquifer deep underneath the ground on the Norris' ranch in Navasota. A number of other sponsors have also been generous in helping the event become a success.

All media are invited to attend and will have special press tents from which to cover the event. Please reach out to the media contact above for press passes and/or details.
