According to Kutcher’s Instagram, 44-year-old Kutcher is running the marathon to raise money for Thorn. Thorn was an organization that he and Demi Moore founded in 2012 to combat child sex trafficking.

According to his fundraising website, the “That’s 70s Show” star had raised more than $1 million to support the charity as of Saturday.

Kutcher is one of 100 marathon runners who pledge to raise money for Thorn. The group focuses on the use of technology to identify child abuse images.

Kutcher said in a video that was posted to the website, “We need your support.” “Every dollar we raise will go towards building these tools so that someday, those children that are being abused today can have a chance at just being kids.”

Kutcher also has partnered with Peloton, a fitness company, for his ride. Kutcher expressed gratitude to Alex Toussaint and Becs Gentry, Peloton trainers, for helping him prepare for the 26.2-mile race.

Kutcher will be joined by around 50,000 runners as he runs through all five boroughs of New York City, beginning on Staten Island and ending in Central Park.

He isn’t alone in running the marathon. Ellie Kemper, Matt James (Bachelor), and Tiki Barber (ex-New York Giants running back) have all reported that they are participating in the race on social media.
