Radio personality/ BET host is set to kick off the 4th Annual "Big Tigger HIV/AIDS Ride for Life" event this weekend in Washington, DC. The fundraising campaign will bring awareness to the growing HIV/AIDS infection rate within minorities of color, specifically youth.

 

The event, sponsored by Suzuki and Tigger's own Street Corner Foundation, will unite over 2,000 bikers and enthusiasts who will ride 23.4 miles from Prince George's Stadium in Bowie, Maryland to the United Medical Center in Washington, DC at 7 a.m. Saturday, August 13.

 "Suzuki is a staple in the motorcycle community and we are excited to have the premier motor corporation to join us to pass on the message 'Get Tested - Know Your Status,'" Big Tigger tells AllHipHop.com.
