Washington, DC - The Georgetown University Athletic Department announces the establishment of Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. and The Wounded Warrior Project as partners to support wounded patients at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in an outreach program.

In the fall of his senior year, Georgetown baseball player Alex Wayman (B'05) was researching community service avenues in the DC area when he saw a story on 60 Minutes about a man who was riding his bike cross country to raise money for patients at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the largest military hospital in the U.S. Alex contacted the hospital and specialist Harvey Narranjo about volunteering and so, began his work. Last year, at least once a week, Wayman visited the hospital to see soldiers in the occupational therapy and rehabilitation clinics, sometimes bearing magazines, DVDs, basketball tickets, and raised over $18,000 which was donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.

After reading about his work with the Walter Reed Hospital, Mark Siegel, a Georgetown baseball alumnus and a Vice President at Merrill Lynch, invited Wayman to his office to discuss potential partnerships. Wayman spent several hours at the Merrill Lynch office talking about the possible ways to bring Merrill Lynch, The Wounded Warrior Project, Walter Reed Hospital and Georgetown Athletics together.

With Wayman serving as the intermediary, a partnership has been established between Merrill Lynch, The Wounded Warrior Project and Georgetown Athletics resulting in an outreach program for veterans.

Among the many features of this unique partnership will the distribution of tickets to Georgetown Men's Basketball games at MCI Center to the wounded veterans. Merrill Lynch, which employs many retired military personnel, will supply thirty tickets to four of the Georgetown men's basketball home games to Merrill Lynch Employees and Walter Reed patients and staff. Before each of these games, they will also sponsor a social reception for the attendees. This ticket program between Merrill Lynch and Walter Reed kicked off with an inaugural partnership dinner.

The main goal of this partnership is to build a relationship between the wounded soldiers, Merrill Lynch, and Georgetown Athletics in hopes of providing insight into future career and educational opportunities for the patients once they have fully recovered and left Walter Reed Medical Center.


Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc., a Delaware corporation, is one of the world's leading financial management and advisory companies, with offices in 36 countries and territories and total client assets of approximately $1.6 trillion, at the end of 2004.
