Christy Turlington Burns‘ latest venture for her charity, Every Mother Counts, is a short film, “Every Mile, Every Mother.”

Directed by Christy Turlington Burns and produced by Clancy McCarty, “Every Mile, Every Mother,” is a short film that explores long distance running as a metaphor for birth.

The film follows 12 runners as they run Hood to Coast, a 200 mile relay race in Oregon, also to highlight the barrier distance creates for women to access critical maternity care.

The film illustrates the support and teamwork required to insure a safe and empowering birth experience for mothers, similar to the support and teamwork required for long distance running.

Here’s a trailer for the short film.

As Christy is set to run the London Marathon tomorrow in honor of her charity, let’s take a look back at some shots that will hopefully speak to the work she has most recently done for this cause.

Keep up the great work Christy and good luck to all of the runners tomorrow!

P.S. We have an Otter Team on their way. Full disclosure, they are better swimmers, but we are certain they will be a fantastic cheering squad.
