WWE to Sponsor Former NY Giants’ ”Journey for 9/11”

World
Wrestling Entertainment has signed on as a sponsor of former Giants defensive
end George Martin’s “Journey for 9/11.” Beginning this Sunday, September 16,
Martin will be walking from
New York City to

San Francisco to raise
awareness and money for rescue workers experiencing health issues related to
their heroic work at ground zero in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on
September 11, 2001.

WWE will
sponsor Martin’s walk financially, and will allow Martin access to WWE’s
extensive fan base via personalized messages and updates featured on WWE.com,
which currently receives more than 20 million unique visitors each month. To
help kick-off his journey, WWE has filmed a special message from Martin asking
WWE fans for their support and participation during his walk. That message is
now viewable on WWE.com, and can be seen by clicking here (www.wwe.com/inside/overtheropes/).

“As a
life-long fan of WWE, I’m extremely proud and grateful to have them as a
sponsor of my Journey for 9/11,” said Martin. “I’m inviting WWE fans to join me
in support of a group of men and women who put their lives on the line during
one of the darkest days in

U.S.
history. Together, we can make a difference, and help pay back those who have
already given us so much.”

New
York side of the

Washington
Bridge.
