TV star Tess Daly took to Instagram to share an emotional message to her husband Vernon Kay, who is nearing the completion of his Children In Need Ultramarathon. Daly expressed her pride and regret for not being able to be at the finish line to support Kay personally. She commended his determination, as Kay has already raised an astounding £4 million for the charity. Despite the toll the challenge has taken on his body, Daly praised his perseverance and the generosity of those who have supported him along the way.
Kay's four-day ultramarathon involves running and walking nearly 100 miles, with the final leg taking him through his hometown of Bolton. On the third day, Kay faced difficulties during the treacherous climb up Kinder Scout, but pushed through the challenge. Despite feeling drained and exhausted, he remained committed to reaching his goal to raise funds for Children in Need.
Supporters and fans warmly welcomed Kay as he arrived at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, and his wife Tess Daly checked in with him via FaceTime to express her emotional support. With the fundraising total standing at around £2.7 million, there is hope to reach £3 million by the end of the event. Kay urged people to donate to Children in Need, emphasizing the impact the charity has on those it supports.
As the ultramarathon nears its conclusion, Tess Daly's heartfelt message serves as a testament to the dedication and resilience displayed by her husband during this incredible fundraising effort.
