Andrea Barber is kicking off her 40's by paying it forward.

The beloved Fuller House star gathered her friends, family and co-stars together for a different kind of birthday party. Instead of a late-night celebration or a lavish party, Andrea decided to do some good on a Sunday morning.

"This is how you celebrate your 40th birthday! A 4.0 mile run on the beach with my closest buds," she shared on Instagram. "A huge thank you to everyone who ran, in person or virtually, for #Andreas40thBdayRun."

She added, "We raised over $7,000 for @girlsontheruninternational! Today is a win for everyone!"

The morning festivities held near the iconic Santa Monica Pier featured guests in matching blue T-shirts with tie-dye socks. And yes, everyone received a metal after completing the workout.

"We did it!! 4 mile run this morning for @andreabarber 40th birthday!!" Jodie Sweetin shared on social media after the event. "Happy Birthday Kimmy!! @candacecbure didn't even have to carry me to the end! Haha! #fullhousefamily #wedidit."

The simple gesture doesn't come as a surprise to those close to the actress. Just ask Candace Cameron Bure who has worked with the Hollywood star for decades.

"Happy Birthday run with my TV BF @andreabarber ! You inspire me in more ways than you'll ever know. You have so much courage and perseverance," The View co-host shared. "I love you mama. #Thisis40 #HappyBirthday #andreas40thbdayrun."

And if you're wondering where the rest of the Fuller House cast was to celebrate, no need to worry. The entire Tanner family was able to party on set with a giant birthday cake earlier in the week.

"The Tanners finally remembered my birthday (this Sunday) and surprised me with a cake on set today...and it wasn't made of hashbrowns this time!" Andrea joked. "#FullerHouse #BestFamilyEver."
