Not put off by the overcast skies forecast for this weekend, KissFM Breakfast DJ, Melvin Odoom, is gearing up for the Virgin London Marathon. The television presenter and radio DJ will be participating along with an expected 35,000 people in one of the greatest running events in the world. So to help him prepare, we provided Melvin with a pair of Polaroid Glide sports sunglasses. We’re confident the sun will make an appearance at some point!
Melvin’s sunglasses have been essential in helping him train in the weeks building up to the event. He will be running in aid of The Prostate Cancer Charity and Breast Cancer Care, who have joined forces to become ‘Team PB.’ The charity has a whole host of celebrities including Geri Halliwell, Denise van Outen and Lisa Snowdon as supporters, so Melvin will be in good company as he takes on the marathon.
“I’m running for Team PB because it’s a great cause and a big challenge for me,” said Melvin. On a personal level prostate cancer is something my grandfather suffered from, so I really value the work of these two great charities.” “I’m really looking forward to Sunday, but am expecting to find it tough – the training has been insane! I think the fundraising Team PB has done and continues to do is absolutely amazing. I am proud to be running with 830 brilliant people.”
