Ashley Cain in tears as he finishes the 100 mile race in memory of Azaylia

Ashley Cain was visibly emotional this afternoon after completing a 100 mile run in memory of his late daughter Azaylia Cain to mark the first anniversary of her death.

The reality TV star, 31, and his ex-partner Safiyya Vorajee, 33, tragically lost their daughter aged just eight months after she was diagnosed with leukemia.

It’s the first anniversary of her death today (April 24) and her proud father was determined to celebrate the date by running 100 miles in honor of Azaylia and her charity.

The initiative saw the Ex on the Beach graduate leave his hometown of Nuneaton in Warwickshire yesterday morning and ended up in Trafalgar Square, London today.

In a post ahead of the run, Ashley said he wanted to help the charity “be seen and heard” in hopes of raising awareness and understanding of childhood cancer.
