WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University Baseball team volunteered at the 2012 Greater Washington Heart Walk, held by the American Heart Association at Nationals Park.

The players arrived at the stadium well before six in the morning to assist other volunteers with setting up tents as well banners.

After helping with unpacking the food and water which was given to participants in the event, player began to line up along the designated walking path to cheer on walkers and interact with numerous survivors of heart related illnesses.

When all participants had crossed the finish line and awards for top contributors were given out, the Hoyas again aided the event's host with taking down tables, chairs and tents.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the team has volunteered to help the 2012 Greater Washington Heart Walk, and the third year that the event has been held at Nationals Park. The team has developed a great relationship with the American Heart Association, which continues to be mutually benefitting.

"I think it's very important for us, as student-athletes, to get out of the Georgetown `bubble' and help out in our community", senior centerfielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) said, "We have been given tremendous opportunities by this university as well as our coaches and families, and it is our responsibility to take our time to help charitable organizations like the American Heart Association."

Sponsors and individuals together helped to donate over $1.6 million to the American Heart Association this year.

The Hoyas will begin spring practice on February 1 and have their first contest at Wofford on February 15.
