Gabby Giffords achieved an important milestone on her road to recovery this week, sky-diving to mark three years since the Tucson, Ariz. shooting that injured her.

"Today, Gabby Giffords is going to do something that is incredibly courageous and inspiring and a little bit surprising — she's going to sky-dive here in Arizona to commemorate the three-year anniversary and all of the progress that she’s made," TODAY's Savannah Guthrie said by phone Wednesday morning from Tucson.

"She is an incredibly brave person. She’s someone who used to love to sky-dive before this shooting took place. She hasn’t done it since."

The jump will air in a TODAY exclusive on Thursday. "I will get to watch," Guthrie said. "This is Gabby's moment."
