To Christy TurlingtonRunning isn’t just for a hobby.

Supermodel and maternal health advocate has opened up about her love for running long distances, which is directly connected to her desire to support mothers worldwide.

In an exclusive preview from NBC’s Inspiring America: The 2022 Inspiration List special airing May 7, Today‘s Savannah Guthrie sits down with Turlington to discuss her charity organization Every Mother Counts, which she founded in 2010 with the mission of ensuring safe pregnancies and childbirth for mothers all over the globe.

“You’re a marathoner. Guthrie teases that she has run alongside her before cutting to the clip with the stars running together.

Christy, I love you but it might end for me! Guthrie jokes.

Guthrie says, “But…how does your running match with your mission?”

Turlington shared, “Distance can be a barrier for women accessing care.” So the thought of running 26.2 mile was, “Oh, that’s a distance a woman has to walk or need to be moved.” “Every mile is a mother,” became my mantra.
