Keri Hilson can walk the walk and talk the talk, and now she’s talking about the walking she’s doing this weekend.
May 20 is AIDS Walk New York, the world’s biggest AIDS fundraiser event, and Keri’s going to be walking for the MTV Staying Alive Foundation team. The Staying Alive Foundation is all about preventing HIV and spreading awareness and education. She’ll be making her rounds around Central Park, and she wants you (yeah, YOU) to join her. We’re not talking about “join her in the spirit of the day” or anything like that — you might be able to physically walk with her. The “Pretty Girl Rock” singer shared deets on Twitter:
’Kay, so you might be able to walk with Ms. Hilson herself. But there’s even more — Keri wants to give you some “incentive” (as if you don’t have enough already!). The first 25 walkers who raise at least $100 are going to get some awesome prizes, including an autographed photo, an AIDS Walk T-shirt, a No Boys Allowed chain, and a Keri T-shirt.
We’ve talked a bit about the Walk before but we’re so psyched about Keri’s involvement (and so aware the date is creeping up on us) that we wanted to talk about it some more. Keri gave us the perf opportunity since she tweeted more about the big day. Remember, everyone: it’s this Sunday in New York City!
